Book by FGV professor published in London
Carlos Pereira, professor at FGV’s Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE), will launch the book ‘Brazil in Transition: Beliefs, Leadership, and Institutional Change’ in London. Written in partnership with experts Lee J. Alston, Marcus André Melo, and Bernardo Mueller, the book will be launched to British readers during an event at King’s College London on February 1.
Released in Brazil in June 2016, the book builds upon an innovative theoretical framework to assess the role played by beliefs, leadership, and institutions during critical moments of transition for sustainable development.
The authors analyzed the last five decades of Brazilian history, showing how these dominant beliefs of social inclusion and macroeconomic balance ultimately created institutions capable of changing economic and social policies. The book goes on to explain that, although these changes spur great economic and social transformations, the process has not been linear, with serious distortions and inefficiencies throughout its course.
