Economic History from EconWPA
During the six decades which encompass state planning of the sugar and alcohol industry in Brazil, production quotas were possibly the most important instrument for control of its productive activities. Their distribution obeyed rules, which, though general, contained a clear political character, specially regarding their geographical distribution. This text details some results of its allocation, showing how their redistribution, from the North-Northeast to the Center-South region, specially to São Paulo, occured. The evolution of total quotas, number of mills and average quotas per mill between two moments – 1951 and 1980 – are examined, seeking to spell out this movement as correlated to the size of initial quotas.
