Event to discuss economic and political perspectives for Brazil in 2019
The Center for Brazilian Macroeconomic Research of FGV’s Sao Paulo School of Economics (EESP) will hold the seminar “Economic and Political Perspectives in 2019” on November 23, starting at 8:30 a.m. The event, which will be held at EESP’s main office (Rua Itapeva, 474 – Bela Vista, Sao Paulo/SP), will include a presentation by the Director of Monetary Policy of the Central Bank of Brazil, Reynaldo Le Grazie, on the economic conditions of Brazil and the world from the point of view of the monetary authority, as well as a panel on the Brazilian outlook for the coming year. Professor Marcelo Kfoury Muinhos will then coordinate a debate on what to expect from the first year of the new administration.
The goal of the event is to analyze the economic and political landscape that the new administration will face next year, as well as the challenges and opportunities that 2019 poses for Brazilians. Samuel Pessoa, an economist from FGV’s Brazilian Institute of Economics (IBRE), will present his insights into which reforms should be a priority to recover the economy and promote a return to sustainable growth above the results of the last two years.
Luiz Fernando Figueiredo, from Mauá Capital, will analyze the time that the market will give the President-elect to show what he is all about. This includes which deadlines and reforms must be approved so as not to discourage the financial market and sour the current good mood. In addition, the event will pay particular attention to the world economy and its effects on Brazil.
Finally, Fernando Limongi will analyze the future Congress and the chances of approving a reform agenda, even with a different relationship with politicians. The high rejection and the approval of unpopular reforms may affect the approval rating of the President-elect and hinder a less physiological relationship with Congress.
