Since 2000, Brazil has had relatively weak economic growth. Nevertheless, the labor market and income distribution have been improving consistently. Saboia will discuss Brazil’s performance and provide an interpretation of the simultaneity of these apparently inconsistent results and what they mean for the future.
João Saboia is a professor at the Institute of Economics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and a UC Berkeley alum.
