Join the Brazil-U.S. Business Council, in association with the Brazil Institute, for an innovative look at how the Brazilian central government is inherently linked to the vast majority of the largest Brazilian companies. 

This Brazil Forum Series Event: A Complex Web of Ties: Business-Government Links in Brazil, will feature Sergio G. Lazzarini, a renowned professor and author. Professor Lazzarini will explain the dynamics of the “capitalism of ties” found in Brazil's economy.  This discussion will examine how the relationship between the central government and the private sector affects the business and political environment both for American and Brazilian companies.

This is a can’t miss event!  We urge all council members to attend, as this presentation will be critical in your understanding of how politics and business are structured in this unique market.

In the last decades, several restructuring experiments have taken place in the Brazilian economy: privatization of firms in myriad sectors, increased trade openness, foreign direct investment, and, more recently, an initial public offer (IPO) wave, with several firms using stock markets as a capitalization tool.  At first glance, these changes appear to have promoted more liberalization and market-oriented reforms.
 
However, Brazilian capitalism has not only preserved, but also reinforced, cross ownership ties between domestic owners and groups with participation of central owners associated with the government.
