the long-term evolution of the Brazilian economy is examined in this chapter. The authors use models that emphasize the determinants of aggregate supply to help decipher the puzzle of Brazil’s growth collapse after 1980. The corollary of their analysis is that Brazil’s slow growth is a result of low rates of investment and domestic savings: if they do not increase, the country will be doomed to grow at the modest rates observed in recent years.

Keywords:   long term growth, investment rate, domestic savings, output-capital ratio, productivity, macroeconomic regime, Brazilian economy
