Brazil’s Macro Economic Performance

Although Brazil was referred to as economic miracle in early 1970’s, the debtcrises that started from Latin America and the later spread over the world also hit Brazil. There were some other economic shocks like Russian crises were also a major cause of Brazilian crisis.

In light of these we see that in late 1990’s due to externalities if we talk about financial stability, then the rate of inflation in Brazil reached approximately 15 %and the growth in GDP was just 1 %in 1998s final quarter. Unstable Institutions also create a major hectic in the economy in the same way as it is evident in 1990’s which means that the turnover of governor in central banks found 1%while Latin America and Brazil had high rate of turnover.

Moreover, in early 2009 Brazil had increased its investment in other countries and it had risen from 700 million to 20 billion during these years.An example of this is that a Brazil-originated company, Petrobras,” is moving globally and it is doing a huge investment in other countries.

In addition to this, it also acquired organizations in the United States such as in in 2008 the companies of Brazil took over Anheuser, which is an American based company.
