FGV Growth & Development
Center for Growth and Economic Development Studies
FGV Growth & Development is an FGV study center dedicated to research in the area of economic growth and development. The center’s research focuses on the Brazilian economy, based on
theoretical knowledge and accumulated experience, especially in the last two decades, and uses comparisons with successful examples of developed economies and emerging markets.
One of the center’s main objects of research is a special emphasis on the need to understand the reasons why some economies are richer than others, as well as to understand what makes a country grow rapidly, while others remain stagnant. In this comparative context, the center attempts to understand the recent experience of Brazil. In this regard, FGV Growth & Development works to identify, suggest and influence the creation of economic policies aimed at removing obstacles to Brazil’s economic development.
