Lingering Brazilian Paradoxes

Abstract

This chapter discusses the challenges currently facing the Brazilian social security system—threatened by the advancement of financial markets, now providing countless services that had once been intrinsic to the State’s provision. It considers how to tackle them and brings out an overall assessment of the way the Brazilian paradox constitutes a challenge that must be adequately addressed by a new model of development. Finally, a brief description of the outcomes of President Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment is provided, along with a short summary of the very controversial reforms underway and their underlying risks.
