    Description: The paper's main goal is to advance in the knowledge of a key function of the government: the policy coordination. This is even more relevant within the core of the government, which is a set of institutions and actors that provide direct support to implementation of priority actions defined by the president. Thus, the research analyzes what mechanisms, instruments and levels of coordination are actually used in the policymaking of four strategic policies during the Lula's and Dilma's administration, namely: i) Programa Bolsa Família (PBF); ii) Programa de Aceleração do Crescimento (PAC); iii) Programa Brasil Sem Miséria (BSM); e iv) Programa de Investimento em Logística (PIL). The investigation employed bibliographic review, content analysis of official publications and, mainly, interviews with actors who occupied key positions in the Presidency and Ministries of Finance and Planning in both administrations. The main conclusion is that in spite of the existence of various formal and procedural coordination instruments, in practice, the instruments most used in priority policies coordination are the ones informal and designed ad hoc for such programs. In addition, the hierarchical mechanism shares space with intra-governmental networking strategies, especially to solve conflicts and disagreements among ministries.

    Description: The present article aims to compare the regulatory and technical standardization systems in Brazil and Argentina, in order to examine the degree of convergence existing and possible between the two trade partners. Understanding the regulatory and standardization characteristics of the two countries is essential to analyze some of the acute problems of the integration process in Mercosur. The examination of regulations, technical standards and the regional instruments to regulatory convergence in these countries makes it possible to compare the level of compatibility between the two regulatory frameworks, as well as to formulate proposals for deepening the regional integration process within Mercosur.

    Description: The Ecoforte Program was created under the National Policy on Agroecology and Organic Production (PNAPO) with the objective of strengthening agroecology networks in Brazil. This research sought to understand how the expectations and demands of civil society to support and strengthen agroecology networks in the territories were internalized in the first edition of the Ecoforte-Redes Program. Therefore, qualitative research was done, with documental analysis and semi-structured interviews with key actors. The results show that Ecoforte was able to cover a wide range of characteristics identified by civil society as relevant to the strengthening of networks, such as funding for mobilization activities and the dynamics of the networks, the prioritization of training and technical assistance activities and support for projects that value diversity, including representative entities of traditional peoples and communities, as well as groups of women and youth. In the opinion of the interviewees, the extension and continuity of the Program were considered fundamental, both for the strengthening of a greater number of networks and for the strengthening of PNAPO itself.

    Description: The main of that paper is to analyze the evolution of oat production in Brazil and its relation with its foreign trade, especially considering the possible impacts that non-tariff barriers may have on the dynamics of oats imports by the brazilian economy. For that, in addition to considering the oat databases in the world and in Brazil, the UNCTAD model of collection, registration and categorization is used as the mechanism of analysis, which is one of the main sources of non-tariff data in the world, namely UNCTAD's Trade Analysis and Information System (TRAINS). From the information researched in these databases, we adopted the partial equilibrium model with constant elasticity of Armington (EP-CES) and the estimation of equivalent tariff that follows the price-wedge method. The results showed that the economic opening through elimination of the tariff greatly affects the domestic market of oats in Brazil.

    Description: This text aims to analyse the New Development Bank (NDB) established by BRICS as part of the group's financial architecture, focusing on the main motivations for its creation, ways of acting and governance structure. Although focused on providing credit for infrastructure and sustainable development projects and acting through different practices of financial institutions established after the Second World War, NDB still faces important challenges to meet those goals.

    Description: Public transport policies play a key role in shaping the ease with each people from different social groups and income levels can access job opportunities, health services and education. Thus, these policies have important implications for the promotion of more just and inclusive cities. This research contributes in three different ways to the literatures on transport accessibility, equity and impact assessment of transport policies. First, the research proposes a theoretical framework for assessing accessibility impacts of transport policies from a distributive justice perspective. Second, it demonstrates the means by which the proposed theoretical framework can be applied to a city in a developing country. This framework is applied to evaluate the transportation policies developed in Rio de Janeiro in preparation for hosting the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. This research examines how the transport legacy of those megaevents impacted accessibility to job opportunities, health and education services for the population of different income levels. The study presents -post and counterfactual analyses of the policies implemented between 2014 and 2017 and ex-ante analysis of an as yet unfinished BRT project. The results show that the expansion in transport infrastructure between 2014 and 2017 could have generated accessibility gains, but these gains were generally offset by the reduction in bus service levels that followed an economic crisis that hit the city after the Olympics Even if the city had not been hit by the economic crisis, transport policies in that period would have had regressive impacts. Those policies have generated higher accessibility gains for wealthier groups, increasing inequalities in access to opportunities. The evaluation of the future accessibility impacts of the unfinished BRT corridor, nonetheless, indicates that such project could significantly improve access to job opportunities for a large share of Rio's population, particularly lower-income groups. Finally, this research shows how the equity and impact assessment of transport projects based on cumulative opportunity accessibility - the most common practice adopted by academic studies and transportation agencies - are sensitive to spatial scale and zoning scheme of analysis as well as on the time threshold considered in the accessibility indicator.

    Description: The literature has been showing that current import tariffs on industrialized products in Brazil are excessively high when compared to countries with similar income per capita. But there's a controversy over the best path to reduce the level of protection, whether through an unilateral tariff reduction or through the negotiation of trade agreements with relevant countries. The aim of this paper is to subsidize this debate, what is made in three ways. First, by analyzing the theoretical matters related to the question; second, by evalutating the internacional experience, what is made through organizing information from different databases concerning trade agreements signed by a huge number of countries in the last decades; and third, through brief case studies of eight middle income countries, whose experience can be used as reference to the Brazilian case: China, Thailand, Russia, Hungary, Poland, Romenia, Mexico and Chile. The paper concludes that high import tariffs doesn't seem to be a precondition for the negotiation and signing of trade agreements and that unilateral tariff reductions and reductions via trade agreements are complementary strategies aimed to satisfy distinct objectives. Therefore, if the country in fact wants to reduce the levels of tariff protection having in sight the economic efficiency and productivity gains that the theoretical literature predicts - and the empirical literature confirms -, the natural way is to make an unilateral liberalization, with the trade agreements playing a complementary role to reach more diversified objectives, not only the economic ones but also geopolitical ones.

    Description: This paper presents an exploratory analysis of the institutional arrangement of the Fund of Investment of Guarantee of the Time of Service (FI-FGTS, in Portuguese) with the main objective of assessing the institutional configuration and the operational performance of FI-FGTS. This instrument was established by Act n. 11.491/2007, within the scope of the Growth Acceleration Program (PAC, in Portuguese), aimed at channeling financial resources of the FGTS for allocation in equity instruments and corporate debt instruments issued in the domestic capital market and associated with infrastructure projects. The research was based on an analysis of the legislation, financial statements, management reports, and databases generated by the Brazilian Association of Financial and Capital Market Entities (Anbima, in Portuguese) and Caixa Econômica Federal. The results indicate that the institution of the FI-FGTS increased the availability of resources to finance infrastructure projects, but it did not have an effect in terms of increasing funding as it only shifted resources from the credit market to the capital market. The observed operational pattern evidenced the existence of a triple gap: low FGTS quota subscription rate, low paid-in subscription rate, and low budget execution rate.

    Description: After the year 2000 homicides data shows an increasing in Brazil. Our attention directed to quantify those who are survivors or co-victims of homicide. Our initial exercise is a methodology to calculate the quantity of survivors from homicide against afro Brazilian black people. In 2010, for each homicide of an afro Brazilian black youth a minimum of 5 to 6 people were affected, causing a total of 82.535 survivors. At the same year, over 4 to 5 people were indirect victims of homicide against afro Brazilian black people summing an amount of 122.761 survivors.

    Description: A subject of great relevance, but little studied in Brazil, concerns the effect of female participation in the labor market (PFMT) on domestic violence. In this article, we try to understand this question from a reflection on two polar literatures based on economic rationality and patriarchal theory, which reach opposite conclusions. Additionally, based on PNAD/IBGE data from 2009, we examined empirically the effects of PFMT on the violence perpetrated not only by the spouse but also by the former spouse. In order to overcome the potential problems of endogeneity, we used a probit model with instrumental variables, in which the instrument for the participation of women in the labor market was based on the number of places in kindergartens and pre-schools in the locality where they live.

    Description: Using retrospective simulations, we examine whether educational expansions in the past could have reduced earnings inequality and income poverty in Brazil. We use data from three censuses and 35 national household surveys (PNAD). The simulations indicate that there are important limitations to what educational policies can do: it would take many decades to reduce inequality and poverty and only a significant scale-up of university education would lead to much lower levels of inequality and poverty. The growth required to have made that possible would have been impressive. Such a reduction could also only have occurred under optimistic assumptions about growth, job-skill matching, and non-declining returns to education. In short, education is not a panacea to poverty and inequality. These results are robust when tested with different data sources, in different decades, and using various measures of inequality and poverty. Our results provide a standard to gauge the effects of other policies in education-equivalent terms.

    Description: This article analyzes paths and patterns of partisan appointments among sector-categories in the executive branch of Brazil from 1986 to 2016. The analysis sought to understand nuances of partisan appointments for ministries in different periods taking into consideration different presidential styles and government coalitions. We applied both qualitative and quantitative research methods and used techniques of document analysis and database construction. The methods also included a complementary discussion from recent researches on partisan ministry preferences. By analyzing partisan appointments among sector-categories, we observed two different patterns. Marked by the existence of smaller coalitions, the partisan appointments in the first period were sparse, except for the Sarney administration. The coalitions were broader in the second period, especially during the Lula and Dilma administrations, when we also observed the appearance of a structural expansion strategy. Bearing in mind the number of ministries headed by the Worker's Party (PT), we claim this strategy allowed the political party of the president to dominate both the social and government sectors. In the party-by-party analysis, Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB) stands out for its inclusion in all the administrations but it is still more concentrated in infrastructure ministries.

    Description: Brazil is a country with a maritime vocation, whose development is intrinsically associated with the sea. The Brazilian coast and jurisdictional waters' extension constitute a challenge on themselves to the national defense. The presence of fundamental potentialities for the country, such as valuable natural resources, important urban centers and large population concentrations along the coast, and communication routes underline the importance of watching and protecting this area, called Blue Amazon. In order to provide adequate means to protect this large area, the Navy has developed strategic programs. One of these programs is the Blue Amazon Management System (SisGAAz), which currently goes through a reformulation due to the country's budgetary restraints. This study aims to demonstrate the importance of developing and implementing SisGAAz to monitor the Blue Amazon. It also discusses the implications of its reformulation, as well as the possible alternatives.

    Description: This study assesses possible costs and benefits resulting from Brazil's accession into the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Government Procurement Agreement (GPA). Initially, this evaluation is based on a bibliographical survey that analyses the effects of the non-discriminatory public procurement policies. An econometric analysis will be carried out to indicate how entry into the GPA can influence the government's use of imported goods and services. Finally, simulations of possible scenarios of GPA impacts in Brazil will be performed in a computable general equilibrium model. The literature points out that the main advantages of entering the GPA are access to the market of government purchases from other countries, increased transparency in procurement processes and consequent gains in efficiency in the public sector. There would certainly be costs related to adapting local laws to give equal treatment to foreign and domestic firms. There is also the fear that entry into the GPA can generate job losses due to the substitution of local suppliers by foreigners, although the theory on the subject does not predict this result clearly. The empirical study indicates that entry into the GPA is at least correlated with an increase in the share of imported government purchases. The general equilibrium analysis indicates that possible costs, in terms of loss of employment and welfare in the Brazilian economy, resulting from the entry into the GPA, could be offset by the increase in exports and by the possible efficiency gains of the public sector.

    Description: The promotion of the transition of family farms to the next generations leads to consequences to the whole agricultural sector. Progress and economical and social stability are associated to the continuity of the rural entrepreneurships. Public policies to Brazilian agriculture must consider its diversity and heterogeneous structure. Based on international experience, this paper aims to study the succession process in agricultural businesses, focusing on public policies based on tax, credit and educational stimuli. Results point to the necessity of systematizing the information on the management of family farms in Brazilian agriculture and suggest promising paths to the contribution of public policies on solutions to the succession problem of those enterprises.

    Description: The text discusses the territory as an instrument of public policies. Normally, the production of the territory mobilizes technical instruments, but also erases the complex course followed by the social and cultural dimension of that production. The nation and the units of administrative organization are stabilized, their production and arbitrary traits erased, and the resulting artifact treated as universal or simply stabilized and fixed. The work here is not deconstructive, but it intends to follow different cartographies present in Brazilian social thought. The analysis based on the texts of recognized authors, Mário de Andrade, Sérgio Buarque de Holanda and Caio Prado Júnior, does not have the concern of exegesis or decipherment, but the re-composition of movements, styles and ideas that configure different symbolic territories, called "cartography".

    Description: This paper discusses the differences between the Annual Continuous PNAD and the recently discontinued Annual PNAD, both surveys developed by IBGE; the relevant distinctions on the social security dimension between the two surveys; the guidelines and the official methodology adopted for measuring the level of the social security coverage (focusing the social insurance coverage) based upon the microdata of the Annual PNAD; the possibilities and limitations on applying this methodology on the Continuous PNAD and new a methodological approach for measurement the coverage, duly adapted to the scope of the new survey and to the changes introduced by Law no 11.718/2008, which redefined some of the requirements for the legal characterization of the Rural Special Insured of the RGPS. According to the microdata of the Continuous PNAD of 2016 (5th Interview), adjusted by the concept of an expanded occupied population (which extrapolates the official concept of occupied population used in the survey), the coverage rate for the occupied population, between ages 16 and 59, is 73.5% (72.8% among men, 74.5% among women); among the elderly, people aged 60 years or over, the coverage rate would be of 85.4% (89.6% among men, 82.2% among women). When using the official concept of occupied population used in the survey, the coverage rates would be 80% (occupied workers: 74.4% among men, 74.0% among women) and 84.6% (elderly: 89.1% among men, 81.9% among women).

    Description: The ICT Household Survey aims to collect data on information and communication technologies (ICT) access and use in Brazil. We use this research to elaborate two exercises. The first one applies logistic regression to determine the factors responsible for connecting a domicile to the Internet. The second one estimates a demand model for the Internet applying a multinomial model of discrete choice. The model contemplates four types of connection: DSL with fixed telephone line, TV cable or fiber optic and mobile via modem or 3G and 4G chip. In the case of logistic regression, we verified that socioeconomic variables such as schooling, income and social class are factors that influence whether the household is connected or not. We verified that the higher the level of schooling or income, the greater the effect on the probability of the household be connecting to the Internet. We observe that there is no defined pattern concern to the effect of a variable on the probability of choosing a type of connection. Thus, each variable responds differently depending on each type of connection. This study is the first attempt with disaggregated data of estimation of Internet demand for Brazil. Although it contains certain weaknesses due to the limitations of the database, it is still a valid exercise insofar as it suggests important indications for the construction of a more reliable database for the supporting studies of Internet demand in Brazil.

    Description: Based on a state policy perspective, this paper presents the path of Brazil's participation in U.N. peace operations, from its genesis in 1947 to the present day, with the intent to comprehend if there is in fact a progressive and evolutionary pattern in the participation of Brazil in peacekeeping, and which would be the challenges, contributions and future orientations to the country in this matter. For that, in a first moment, the text will bring a conceptual discussion regarding the different definitions and understandings on peacekeeping operations. Subsequently, we will analyze the evolution of UN peacekeeping operations throughout its 70 years and the Brazilian positions during this period. In a third moment, we will present the final considerations identifying the upcoming challenges and the main possible perspectives for Brazil to engage in future peacekeeping operations. The intention, therefore, is to ascertain whether peacekeeping operations, as an instrument of international policy aligned to the guidelines of Brazilian defense policy and foreign policy, should continue to be supported by Brazil or if new reorientations are necessary as a national strategy.

    Description: The objective of the present study is to estimate the factors that influencing global agricultural production, as well as to assess the technical efficiency of countries, taking account the context of climate change. The problem is: are countries that seek productive solutions to increase productivity and competitiveness the most efficient in a sustainable production logic? It is believed that the countries that increased the most production were those that intensified the emission of GHG (Greenhouse Gases), which leads to associate the false interpretation that growing countries pollute more. The hypothesis to be tested, therefore, is: the countries that grew the most (or increased production) were those that used the most technology that sequesters carbon, increasing its technical efficiency. To do this, a Stochastic Frontier model was used, based on the 1992-2014 data from 118 countries, available from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the World Bank and the Food Agriculture Organization (FAO). The study show that sustainable solutions in agricultural production, which increase the capacity of CO2 capture by soil, imply an increase in productive efficiency and that these measures are not fully disseminated worldwide, only in countries listed as more technically efficient.

    Description: Eradicating poverty is the first of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Objectives (ODS) for 2030. The Bolsa Família Program (BFP) is one of the main Brazilian initiatives in this regard, not only for the benefit paid to poor families, but also for promoting their prioritization for health, education and social assistance policies. The purpose of this paper is precisely to understand how these policies have been organized to serve the public PBF. In order to do so, we analyze the management of Bolsa Familia conditionalities within decentralized systems of education, health and social assistance, focusing on mobilized coordination mechanisms and consequent changes in the functioning of the policy to reach this public. It can be verified that the PBF has been able to enter the protocols, pacts and federative commitments of each articulated system, being, however, little debated in the respective structures of coordination. The program is also supported by financial incentives from the three policies, as well as mobilizing networks of managers at the three levels of government for their implementation in the areas of education and health. In addition, it has been producing changes in the way these policies work with the poorest public, through active search for specific offer and monitoring of the access of its beneficiaries. However, the results show that health policies, and especially social assistance policies, have yet to improve their mechanisms to broaden the coverage of the program's public supply and monitoring. In addition, the systematic use of the results of conditionalities management - understood as a diagnosis of the failures in the supply and monitoring processes - remains to be explored, in order to qualify the definition of intersectoral flows and protocols on how to act in the face of the situations encountered.

    Description: Health is an important area of activity of the Institute of Applied Economic Research (Ipea), whose purpose is to promote and carry out research and social and economic studies, as well as disseminate the resulting knowledge, offering society solutions to the challenges of economic and social Brazilian development. In the perspective of the relation between health and development, the objective of this text is to analyze the contributions of Ipea to the promotion of national socioeconomic development, through its production in health from 1982 to 2018. A descriptive and relational bibliometric study was carried out, in order to describe this production and to identify the relationships between the various subjects treated in the documents produced that are of interest to the Health Sciences (human health), with or without interfaces with other areas of knowledge. The analysis of the mapped material was done with the support of the software Iramuteq (Interface de R pour les Analyses Multidimensionneles de Textes et de Questionnaires), version 0.7 alpha 2, for treatment of the qualitative data related to the document subject descriptors. From the Descending Hierarchical Classification (CHD), which considered 349 texts (77.7% of the textual corpus), three categories of subjects were obtained which, in general terms, refer to the following topics dealt with in this production:: i) financing of Brazilian public health care system (SUS), health expenditures and government regulation; ii) resource allocation and health management; and iii) inequalities in health levels, inequalities in the access to health services, and social participation. It is concluded that the Institute's researchers have produced knowledge and provided relevant information on aspects related to population health and the health sector that impact development factors, especially in identifying problems, monitoring and evaluating public policies and programs. In addition, that it is possible to enhance this contribution in the health area, with the active participation of its staff in the proposals elaboration, policies formulation and in the medium and long term governmental planning.

    Description: The present study aims to investigate the transformations in industrial activity in three states of the Southeast region (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais), the significant nucleus of Brazilian industry, between 1996 and 2015, with a focus on change structural and territorial reorganization. By means of the descriptive statistics of a set of indicators, according to the predominant competitive factor of the industrial activity, it was possible to verify that, in general lines, the region did not show retrocession in the industrial activity, since, there was no decrease in absolute terms of the production and/or industrial employment. But, the low growth rates of the industry in the region; structural change with the expansion of traditional industry, to the detriment of the scale-intensive industry; and the reduction of productive densities - with the exception of activities based on natural resources - signalize harmful aspects of their dynamics. Within the territorial scope, deconcentration is notorious in all sectoral categories analyzed, even in a context of semi-stagnation of industry.

    Description: The goal of the study is to evaluate the targeting of the Bolsa Família Programme and its impacts on the reduction of poverty and inequality. To that end, we have used data from the 2001-2015 standard National Household Sample Survey (Pesquisa Nacional por Amostra de Domicílios - PNAD) and from the 2016 and the 2017 longitudinal PNAD. The results support the findings of previous studies. Bolsa Família is by far the most progressive transfer ever enacted by the federal government. Its excellent targeting explains why, despite its small budget (0.5 per cent of GDP) and its limited representation in household income as reflected by PNAD (0.7 per cent), the programme has such a significant impact on poverty reduction: its transfers reduce poverty by 15 per cent and extreme poverty by 25 per cent. Dynamic decompositions of the Gini coefficient suggest that the programme was responsible for the 10 per cent of the reduction in inequality between 2001 and 2015. From 2001 to 2006 (the period during which the programme grew most significantly), Bolsa Família accounted for almost 17 per cent of the observed reduction in inequality. Findings suggest that the targeting of the Programme is already very good and that the main restraining factor of the Programme's impact on poverty is not targeting, but rather the low value of the transfers.

    Description: The objective of this paper is to analyze the trade flow between Brazil and the United States between 2000 and 2014, considering its evolution and analyzing indicators such as export and import tariffs, relative importance of bilateral trade, trade intensity index, concentration index, index of comparative advantage revealed and the intersectoral pattern of bilateral trade. To contextualize the analysis of trade flows between the two countries, a brief retrospective of the conduct of Brazilian foreign policy between 2000 and 2014 is presented, particularly considering the strategies of Brazil's diplomatic relations with the United States, whose objective is to provide subsidies for construction hypotheses and speculations about the relationship between foreign policy and trade flows. In this sense, it is important to point out that no assertion is made in the sense that foreign policy has determined the behavior of trade flows between the two countries, since during the period there were several other factors operating and there is no analysis to capture the relevance of foreign policy.

    Description: This text deliberates and relates the concepts of culture, human rights and cultural policies within the idea of cultural development. It considers the development as a set of activities of transformation of social and environmental reality in interface with the cultural dimension. It describes the concept of creative economy by relating it to new forms of post-industrial production and makes an exercise to define and measure social categories (creative classes) that work in creative activities in Brazil for the period 20022015. Therefore, it shows the dynamics and the participation of the creative economy and the culture economy in the Brazilian development processes. The analysis of the way that creative classes in Brazil are organized carried out in this article, took as parameter the classification inspired by the study of Richard Florida and remodeled for the Brazilian reality from the data of the PNAD and the official professional classifications of the IBGE. It shows that the creative class has grown significantly in its quota, from 10 million people in 2002 to 15 million in 2015, registering significant variations in the contingent of the professional groups that involve it (hyper creative center, hyper creative and creative professionals, with increases of 37%, 51% and 23%, respectively). Although it is a small contingent compared to the United States, for example, whose percentage reaches 30% of the workforce of that country, the results obtained in this study point to a not insignificant increment of the creative economy in the country.

    Description: The opportunities in the labor market and formation of human capital (education) affect the implicit costs of engaging in illegal activities. In this article we empirically investigate the effect that the unemployment rate, which real income in the labor market and which school atandence rate for young people (15 to 24 years) exert on the prevalence of homicides in Brazilian municipalities. We also analyze the heterogeneities related to the specialization of work and the life cycle in youth. In order to overcome the problems of endogeneity, in our identification strategy we used a instrumental variable estimation of panel data model for all Brazilian municipalities (between 1980 and 2010), closely following the approach developed by Gould et al. (2002). The instruments its relationship to long-term structural changes in industry that affect the demand for labor in cities. We found the following results over homicide rate: i) positive effect of men's unemployment rate, which is greater for young adults (25-29 years); ii) no effect of real hourly labor wage ; and iii) the negative effect of the school attendance rate of 15 to 17 years.

    Description: The present text deals with the importance of methodological debates in research organizations that formulate studies, proposals and appraisals of public policies. They should be open to diversity and innovation of conceptions, interpretations and methods. The text also expounds this methodological vision: to a large extent, scientific knowledge consists of conjectures and educated guesses, connected overall in a uncertain and fallible web. The connection is often made by means of nondemonstrative logic. Some subjective elements enter into nearly all arguments, inferences and reasonings. Hence, appraisals of almost all of them are personal. In science, alongside abundant disagreements, there are agreements and settlements; but there are no factual truths that may be definitely established by holders of a rank or position in any organization.

    Description: The executive vetoed two legislative proposals on the creation and emancipation of municipalities in its entirety in 2013 and 2014. In August 2018, another supplementary bill, with six other proposals attached, is under an emergency regime, awaiting a vote in the House plenary. The theme of creation and emancipation of municipalities is pressing in the Brazilian legislative debate. The academic literature lists evidence of the negative results of municipal fragmentation, especially for metropolitan regions. This monograph quantifies the quality of life of metropolitan citizens in the face of four alternative rules of distribution of municipal tax collection. Hence, it adds evidence to the current literature, usually of an argumentative nature. Methodologically, a validated agent-based spatial model is simulated with three markets: real estate, goods and labor. Upon these markets, taxes on consumption, profits, wages, property and real estate transactions are applied. The alternatives tested are verified through econometric models. Two of them use real exogenous variables and three use simulated data. The results confirm two central conclusions. First, the progression of the Municipal Participation Fund (MPF) and its relevance to guarantee a better quality of life in metropolitan municipalities is confirmed. The second indication is that the simple municipal merger would improve citizens' quality of life, compared to the status quo in 23 Brazilian metropolises. In some cases, the metropolitan municipal merger is sufficient to compensate for a hypothetical absence of the FPM criteria. In any case, the monograph presents quantitative evidence that allows comparing alternative tax distributions for each of the 40 simulated metropolises, identifying more efficient forms of fiscal distribution and contributing to contemporary literature and parliamentary debate.

    Description: This Working Paper presents the evaluation of the qualitative criteria considered by cargo shippers when they contract freight services with logistic operators and transporters in Brazil. To do so, the data of a survey carried out by the Planning and Logistics Company (EPL), in which a set of stated preferences was simulated with the shippers, are used. It was possible to obtain the willingness to pay (WTP) values for the attributes time, reliability, flexibility and security, through a mixed logit model. Weight of 83% in the shippers' process of choosing the carrier; the time had weight of 8%, and the other attributes around 3% each. The overall WTP results, for a trip with an average distance of 500 km, were: R$ 2.33/t for the reduction of one hour of travel; R$ 4.70/t to have 95% certainty in the delivery time (reliability); R$ 5.14/t for flexibility in delivery; and R$ 6.25/t to limit losses by up to 0.25% (security). These results vary depending on the distance of the trip and the region of the country where the cargo will be shipped. However, there were no significant variations for the type of cargo, possibly by most survey respondents operate with industrialized cargoes, while only a small part operated mineral and agricultural bulk. A generalized transport cost function was proposed to be used in network allocation models for transport network planning purposes. With such a cost function, it will be possible to incorporate the qualitative factors considered by the shippers into their transport mode and route choices, provided that the arcs of the modeled network contain the respective parameters of time, safety and reliability.

    Description: This text aims to describe practices, enjoyment and production of online content, that is, the culture in TIC Domicílio 2017 preparing ground for possible dialogues with TIC Cultura, both performed by the Regional Center for Studies on the Development of the Information Society (Cetic.br), in order to contribute to the reflection on the internet's use and access to cultural goods and services. In order to do so, a survey of the historical context of the Internet's emergence and development was carried out, as well as the political-economic structuring that governs its organization and, consequently, the processes in the digital world. From data's analysis, the access of selected practices was socioeconomically characterized, as well as the accumulation of uses - the action of performing various practices on the internet and its different types of use. The analyzes were based on the understanding of the value inherent to the process of statistical construction based on Bruno Latour and Steve Woolgar's notion of literary inscription; as well as Pierre Bourdieu's conception of structured field and instances of consecration and legitimation. As a result, it was verified a need to relativize the majority discourses that emphasize the supposedly democratizing character of the medium, once the Internet produces and reproduces hierarchies, exclusions and social inequalities. Regarding to the population's access to cultural equipment, it is necessary to understand the determinations of the practices, as well as the cultural dispositions' characteristics that organize the individual investments in the uses of the ICTs.

    Description: The main question behind this article is: does the University for All Program (Prouni) promote better professional trajectories, which result in higher salaries for its beneficiaries? The salaries of the graduates who were employed show that those who went to college through Prouni had a more precarious insertion. Nonetheless, contrary to what may seem at first glance, this does not necessarily demonstrate a failure of this program to promote better occupational trajectories. After all, the variation of salaries before and after college graduation shows that there were salary advances for both groups, beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries of Prouni. However, in the case of the beneficiaries, this advance seems to have been significantly larger.

The discussion deducing that there is a high volume of regional commuting that potentially use the highway and not charged. Otherwise, there was a small portion of the population tariffed, how had lower incomes and charge with "gratuity" commuting. In addition, this study illustrate the impact and reflexes of the uni and bidirectional charges for this low-income population.

    Description: This work aimed to synthetize information regarding beef, pork and broiler production in Brazil, as well as the role of Brazil in the international market. This study was developed within a partnership between The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) and The Institute for Applied Economic Research (Ipea). We find that both production and productivity have increased from 2009 to 2018. These increments allowed Brazil to be a major player in meat production and exports during the period, which is strongly related to cost advantages over other countries. China has increased its meat imports from Brazil, whilst Russia systematically reduced its beef and pork. Overall, we suggest to policymakers to set up strategies to promote Brazilian meat and open new markets in order to diversify the consumers and reduce the exports dependence, and its inherent risks, to few countries.

    Description: The paper assess the effect of the Brazilian Conditional Cash Transfer Program, Bolsa Familia (BF), on school attendance among adolescent mothers relative to adolescent non-mothers, combining quantitative and qualitative technics. The quantitative analysis was based on the 2010 Census, and was conducted in two steps. First we estimated through logit models the impact of maternity on schooling attendance for each one of the 138 Brazilian meso-regions. Then we used a linear model at the meso-region level to estimate the relationship between the incidence of BF on one hand, and the previously estimated sensibility of the schooling attendance to maternity on the other hand. The results indicate that BF increases relative less the schooling attendance among adolescent mothers. Semi structured interviews with adolescent mothers living in Distrito Federal corroborate this result and add more insights to policy discussion.

    Description: In this paper, we estimate the distributive impacts of trade openness on within sector income distribution. The empirical approach is to estimate the econometric relation between effective rates of protection and various indicators of within sector inequality: the Gini and Theil indices of wage inequality in each economic sector, the ratio between wages of production and nonproduction workers, and the ratio between the wage bill and value added for each sector. The econometric specification is a fixed effects model in which each sector is compared to itself in various moments in time. The results show a significant but small effect of trade openness upon wage inequality as measured by Gini and Theil Coefficients and also small effects in the opposite direction between trade openness and the wage bill to value added ratio. This means that a substantive reduction in effective rates of protection will lead to small reductions in wage inequality and even smaller increases in the functional inequality in each sector.

    Description: The purpose of this text is to analyze the weight and the allocation of resources through parliamentary amendments in the federal budget to finance expenditures with public health services (ações e serviços públicos de saúde - ASPS) from 2015 to 2018. An exploratory and descriptive study of the Ministry of Health budget execution was conducted, focusing on the resources that were allocated to health programs to assist specific beneficiaries. Data were obtained from the SIGA Brasil, a public access system maintained by the Federal Senate. Some indicators were calculated to support the analysis. The results show that the Ministry of Health is engaged in a larger volume of expenditure than is determined by mandatory parliamentary amendments, and that its expenses associated with other, non-mandatory parliamentary amendments, are occurring in very high level. In 2018, the mandatory parliamentary amendments execution was R$ 4.4 billion and the expenses associated with parliamentary amendments in general totaled R$ 8.8 billion. It was identified an increase in the allocation of resources for the costing of the Unified Health System (Sistema Único de Saúde - SUS) and deficit of transparency in the budget-financial execution of the resources allocated to the increment of the resources for primary care (Piso da Atenção Básica - PAB) and the resources for medium and high complexity services (Teto de Média e Alta Complexidade - Teto MAC). There was an increase in the allocation of funds to increase the PAB and Teto MAC in the analyzed period, so that these transfers increased from R$ 240.1 million in 2014 to R$ 6.6 billion in 2018, at constant values, with an increase of 2,650% in this period. As in 2018, expenses with ASPS associated with parliamentary amendments totaled R$ 8.8 billion, the resources allocated by parliamentarians for temporary increase of the PAB and Teto MAC that year correspond to 74.9% of total expenses associated with amendments parliamentarians. Inequalities were also identified in the allocation of resources for the costing of the services of both the Teto MAC and the PAB. In the latter case, without observing the criteria established for resource allocation. Finally, it is concluded that the allocation of resources for SUS funding through parliamentary amendments may be generating more inequalities in the provision of health services in the system, something that needs to be investigated in detail in future studies.

    Description: The economic transformations occurred in the new frontier of Brazilian agribusiness, Matopiba, especially with relation to employment opportunities in the agribusiness, have motivated migratory flow to this region. Thus, the objective of this study is to evaluate the income differentials between the migrant and the non-migrant in the region. Microdata extracted from the 2010 Demographic Census, made available by IBGE, were used. Equations of income differentials were estimated, separating individuals by domicile, labor market (formal and informal) and sectors of activity. The results showed that non-migrants obtained lower incomes than migrants in all working groups. The largest income differentials occurred among rural individuals, the workers of the informal market, specifically among autonomous workers, and those employed in agricultural activity. It is believed, therefore, that the insertion of the migrant into the local economy contributes to the expansion of agriculture in this region.

    Description: Technology management is currently a major challenge to health systems. Scientific and technological development in recent decades has made possible to offer sophisticated treatments for various diseases, contributing to the increase of the population's expectations and quality of life. However, access to these advances has not become universal. Considering this reality, the objectives of this text are to point out and discuss challenges that the State face in relation to the incorporation of drugs in the Unified Health System (SUS). It was taking into account the principles that guide the therapeutic assistance offered through the system, its current process of health technology assessment and the budgetary constraint imposed on the system, in recent years, by economic crisis and by fiscal austerity. Documents that establish the legal framework of this issue, scientific articles and information on the spending on medicines and access to these products were used to support the arguments presented in this text. Finally, we recognize the advances promoted by the SUS regarding the supply of health goods and services to the population and the technology assessment process, but also the need to improve health technology management and pharmaceutical services policies.

    Description: This study aims to analyze the quantile treatment effect of Prouni on the students' Enade grades from 2015 to 2017. The results indicated that the impact of the program was positive throughout the grades distribution, mainly for students who received full scholarship. The impact was also greater for students who declare family income of more than three minimum wages, which reinforces the argument that it is necessary to focus the policy resources on low-income students and prioritize those with the highest budget constraints. The effect of the program was also positive for students enrolled in institutions with quality concept 4 and 5. Thus, the study results confirm that financial aid policies for low-income students are able to combine inclusion and quality in higher education.

    Description: Brazil federal tax policy changed course since 2007, when it was heavily activated to stimulate economic activity in a broad sense including job creation. A key policy instrument in this period was a tax on manufacturing products known as IPI (Imposto sobre produtos industrializados), whose tax rates decrease for a long list of products. Our main objective in this paper is to evaluate the impact of IPI reductions from 2007 to 2012 on labor market related outcomes, such as employment, hiring, separations and wages. We got null estimates for the impact in all labor market related variables for the whole period. Once we consider two subperiods, there appears impacts of reductions in IPI driving reductions in separations only for the 2010-2012 period. All these results are robust to alternative methodological procedures.

    Description: Allocating sufficient resources to the Unified Health System (SUS) is a basic premise for compliance by the State with its duty to guarantee universal, equal and integral access to health goods and services in Brazil. As a way of ensuring minimal resources to the system, the compulsory expenditure with health was instituted. Recently, amid the fiscal crisis and the changes in the political environment in the country, the extinction of this compulsory expenditure is considered. In this context, the objective of this paper is to present evidence and discuss the relevance of maintaining the compulsory public health expenditure, thus contributing to the public debate on the topic. A narrative review of the technical-scientific literature and legal documents was performed to organize the discussion on the subjects treated in two perspectives: i) a historical perspective on the regulation of the minimum application of resources in the SUS, including in the report the propositions that weren't approved and the motivations for this regulation; and ii) a theoretical-empirical perspective on the hypothesis that universal public health systems, such as the SUS, and the compulsory health expenditure in Brazil are relevant to the right to health as determined by the Federal Constitution of 1988 (CF/1988). Considering the evidence presented about the lack of priority with the system and, consequently, with the guarantee of the right to health in Brazil, the conclusion is that the compulsory health expenditure remains essential. Even so, this obligation alone does not solve the financing problem of the system, since in spite of the institution of the floors of application from 2000, health expenses are still very low compared to those countries with similar income and who do not have a universal health system. However, it is an important mechanism to protect against throwback in the supply of health goods and services, something that is forbidden by CF/1988. The stability in the financing of the SUS is fundamental and the compulsory health expenditure fulfilled vital role, considering the trajectory of public health financing. Nonetheless, the country needs to make an additional effort to guarantee sufficient resources to finance the SUS, given the challenges posed to the system stemming from epidemiological, demographic and technological issues that drive the growth of health spending.

    Description: The objective of this study was to examine the extent to which the railway modalities implemented in the Midwest region have contributed to boost the integration process of this region to the main international consumption centers. In order to do so, it was adopted the hypothesis that the export vector has to boost the transformations in the productive structure of the Midwest, integrating, therefore, this regional space to the logic of valorization of international capital, particularly to the main centers of consumption located in the markets Asian countries. For that, in the methodological aspect, the descriptive and analytical method was adopted. Finally, it can be observed in the investigation that the railway modal in the Midwest presented strong evidence to contribute, directly and indirectly, to reinforce the development strategy outlined in this region, from the 90's of the XX century, of integrate these local economies through national integration and development with the main centers of international consumption, especially those located in the Asian region.

    Description: This study aimed to verify the relationship for the period 1999-2015 among Brazilian agricultural gross domestic product (GDP), rural credit and transport infrastructure investment. For this purpose, the time series methodology was applied to quarterly data, involving an estimation of a vector error correction model (VECM) and Granger causality tests. The results of the estimation of VECM suggest a negative long run relationship from public infrastructure investment to rural credit and agricultural GDP, but with a low economic impact. Granger tests pointed causality from agricultural GDP to rural credit and public infrastructure investment, and from agricultural GDP and public investment to credit. These results suggest that agricultural GDP growth had the potential to leverage the demand for rural credit and infrastructure investments. On the other hand, the competition for resources between financing rural production and public infrastructure investment resulted in a negative impact on the agricultural sector in the long run.

    Description: The scope of this study is comprehensive, extending from technological development to historical evolution of planning in energy sector. On policy, the current situation of the national context was clarified, including reforms and programs that characterized the industry in the last two decades. The adherence of Brazilian policy to the evolution of the energy and climate policies at the international level was obtained with the examination of more than ten countries and with the chronological comparison of the regulatory framework in Brazil, the United States and the European Union. The most interesting, however, was to see how planning and policy can be shaped by technical progress, albeit belatedly. This finding followed the examination of the technological dimension, divided in twelve branches of energy generation, which allowed a glimpse of the diversity of alternatives, as well as the real chances of achieving truly sustainable technologies.

    Description: This paper estimates the consequences of mismatches between workers' attainment of vocational education and requirement of this type of qualification in their occupations in Brazil. Two types of vocational education are investigated here: vocational training and secondary vocational education, which are the most important in Brazil. Combining data from the 2007 PNAD and the 2010 Brazilian Classification of Occupations, indicators of required qualification can be imputed to each employed individual according to his or her occupation. Thus, based on the attainment of vocational education, workers in the sample can be classified as adequately matched, overqualified or underqualified. Estimates indicate that the lack of required qualification seems to have negative consequences on labor earnings, and that workers with vocational education earn more than those who did not complete a course of this type even in occupations where vocational education is not need.

    Description: This text presents a typology proposal for State visions on representations of women as references to shape the public action. The theoretical framing of this proposal assumes that there are many disputes among narratives of state agents, considering the patriarchal foundations of political institutions. Many works on this issue correctly criticize, in our opinion, the State's maternalist framework of women on social development policies, reinforcing stereotypes and the sexual division of care. We agree with this approach, but we also present other views that the State can take when it comes to policies that have women as the target audience. From a formal analysis of selected policies, we indicate that, in addition to this reproductive vision, it is also possible to identify a productive vision (which fits women exclusively as labor in the labor market), an inclusive vision (which prioritizes to consolidate citizenship rights for women in an expanded approach to fight gender inequality) and a reactive vision (which incorporates women already in the course of policy implementation as a later incremental adjustment). These categories do not seek to completely exhaust the possibility of visions of the State on women. Our goal is to understand the policy designs implemented in the last decades in Brazil identifying more effective and incisive measures to fight gender inequality in the country.

    Description: The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of foresight methods and techniques, with the aim of updating the debate and highlighting the more recent approaches in the field. In revisiting these methods and techniques, we observed the need for a brief incursion in an epistemological discussion. On the one hand, we conclude that foresight studies lean toward a pragmatic standing, neglecting the epistemological rigor. This epistemological frailty can damage the field's legitimacy as an academic and scientific endeavor. On the other hand, we observe a clear revival of foresight, with new research centers around the world, which shows that futures studies are pivotal as a base for decision making processes and for the desire for change.

    Description: This work aimed to reproduce the methodology of Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne of 2017 for estimating the automation probabilities of occupations in Brazil. These estimates are potentially important for professionals and policymakers because they can guide the career of a worker, as well as define priority courses that educational institutions should offer in order to maximize employment opportunities in the country. We consulted the opinion of 69 scholars and professionals that are experts in machine learning to ground the estimation the automation probability of Brazilian occupations. The findings indicate that a large part of the occupations can be automated in the next years. In addition, it can be seen that these professions with a higher risk of automation show a trend of growth over time, which may result in a high level of unemployment in the coming years if professionals and the government do not prepare for this scenario.

    Description: The Brazilian tax system places undue emphasis on indirect taxes - which comprise over 51% of its gross tax burden. The country's insistence on taxes on goods and services (indirect taxes) - to the detriment of taxes on income and property (direct taxes) - undermines the real application of the principle of contributive capacity, resulting in a regressive system whereby families with less income proportionally finance a larger share of the State. In the study, we analyze this disturbing national quirk in light of the evolution of the tax systems of certain central countries and draw comparisons with their current legislation. In addition to being normatively biased, Brazilian tax legislation has several technical limitations for the application of more efficient and equitable taxation on property and income. We undertake an exercise applying the Pareto interpolation method, using the 2008-2009 Household Budget Survey and the Large Numbers of Individual Income Tax Declarations (DIRPF), to estimate the level of inequality resulting from changes to personal income tax legislation. The key variable in the analysis is the reinstatement of taxation on profits and dividends, which are currently tax exempt. To that end, we have developed two simulations: one taxing profits and dividends at a 15% flat rate, and the other at a progressive rate varying between 15.0% and 27.5%. The results indicate a small improvement in income distribution, which is modest given the high level of income concentration in the country. On the other hand, there is a significant increase in revenue, between R$ 22 billion and R$ 39 billion, depending on the model for the taxation of profits and dividends. Finally, we performed a counterfactual exercise, whereby the additional revenue generated by the adoption of taxes on profits and dividends was used to fund an increase in public expenditure in several areas. The result was an improvement in income distribution.

    Description: In the period 2001-2011, we had a strong increase in private credit in Brazil, which increased from 27.2% to 51.6% of gross domestic product (GDP). In addition, private credit with free resources (with interest rates freely negotiated in the market, without subsidies and without direction) went from 15% to 30% of GDP. Private credit with free resources for firms grew strongly between 2004 and 2008, from around 10% in 2004 to around 15% of GDP in 2008. In this text, we sought to analyze the effects of this increase on private credit with free resources for firms in the percentage of entrepreneurs in the Brazilian economy in the 2004-2008. To do so, we used a version of the neoclassical growth model with heterogeneous agents, credit restrictions and occupational choice, making use of a mixed estimation and calibration approach for the Brazilian economy in 2004 in its implementation. We also simulated the increase in credit for firms with free resources in the period. The results show significant impacts of the credit increase for the firms on the percentage of entrepreneurs in the economy. In the exercise performed, the increase in credit with free resources for firms generated a growth of around 5% in the percentage of entrepreneurs in the total population between 2004 and 2006. Moreover, this increase in access, raised per capita GDP by 2% between 2004 and 2008, in the model. In this case, the rise in credit explains about 13.5% of the rise in GDP per capita in the period.

    Description: It is discussed the weakening of special funds, as a mechanism for financing public policies. It operates on two fronts to support this fragilization. In the first one, innovations in the management of public resources are presented, making the funds expendable both to the linking of revenues and to the accumulation of balances (financial surplus). In the second, the idea of being funds (through the linkage of revenues) is disguised as a guarantee of resources for the purposes pursued. Exposure to the contingency contingency (arising from current tax rules), the constitution of a Contingency Reserve with own and/or linked revenues, in addition to the incidence of the DRU, underpin the aforementioned deconstruction. It is argued by way of conclusion that, on the financial flank, public policies are facing new challenges that (it is believed) have not yet been properly identified. How to face them, in turn, demands collegial decision, dialogical reason, that supplant the purposes of the investigation. Here we are content with this process of identification, which shortens spaces for confrontation.

In this sense, we will analyze the main regional institutions in countries such as Portugal, Spain, Italy and France, from the analysis of a relevant bibliography, from primary and secondary sources. The preliminary results of this study indicate that the accession of these countries to the European Union was decisive for the national regional policies to be substantively modified.

    Description: In the last few years, many Brazilian firms have been strongly interested in programs of compliance as well as in programs of integrity. These matters are also relevant to government offices of inspection and control of public sector activities as well as to offices of regulation of economic affairs in the private sector. The present text is introductory and deals with the importance of programs of integrity. The major reason for them is that they concern in a conscious and more direct way the aim of attaining integrity in a organization. While supporting this assertion, the text distinguishes between programs of risk management, programs of compliance and programs of integrity. Moreover, it explains what is integrity and what role it has.
