After the 1994 Real Plan ended fourteen years of high inflation in Brazil, the country's economy was expected - mistakenly - to grow quickly. Luiz Carlos Bresser-Pereira discusses Brazil's economic trajectory from the mid-1990s to the present Lula administration, critically appraising the neoliberal reforms that have curtailed growth and proposing a national development strategy geared toward effective competition in the global marketplace. This title offers a reasoned critique of the neoliberal reforms that have curtailed economic growth in Brazil since the mid-1990s, informing a proposal for an innovative new development strategy.
