Abstract: This paper highlights the transmission mechanism of monetary policy in Brazil. It is an empirical analysis of the effects of monetary policy on the behavior of firms in Brazil. Original data base formed with financial statements of 291 public companies and 4,797 private companies is built. Balance sheet theory is used to investigate how firms respond to monetary contractions. The results indicate that small firms are more sensitive to monetary contractions than large companies.
