Deindustrialization and investment in infrastructure as a conciliatory alternative for the Brazilian industrial policy
Brazilian Journal of Political Economy, 2015, vol. 35, issue 3, 576-600
The poor performance of the Brazilian industry in the post-crisis 2008, resumed the debate surrounding the need of an industrial policy outline. Accordingly, and given its characteristics, the investment in infrastructure figures a conciliatory and efficient alternative in the task of returning competitiveness to this sector. Thus, this paper aims to deepen the debate on the issue of deindustrialization of the Brazilian economy and contribute to the discussion on the functionality of infrastructure investment as an instrument of industrial policy, emphasizing its conciliator character in what we call here a base industrial policy. JEL Classification: O21; O25.
