Poderíamos nos perguntar sobre o porquê de a economia brasileira não se abrir. Ah, e a solução não é a famigerada “política industrial” (= “política industrial vertical”, queridinha dos pterodoxos).
In Brazil, given its labour shortages and aspirations of rising purchasing power, productive activities would be strengthened by the availability of cheaper local consumer, intermediate, and capital goods. Brazil’s immersion in global value chains would allow the country to leverage its comparative advantages which clearly exist in natural resource-associated industries but which could also emerge in specific activities in manufacturing or services once industries have access to cheaper inputs. Of course, public policy support remains essential. However, this support should be more horizontal in nature, rather than further encouraging the ongoing high density of production chains and perpetuating the extraordinary closedness of the Brazilian economy.
Ok, é preciso ler tudo, mas o artigo é pequeno. Não vai doer.
