BRAZIL: Innovate Locally, Compete Globally


Glauco Arbix argues that top-tier Brazilian firms are now able to compete internationally with medium- and high-technology goods in his CLAS talk covered by graduate student Daniel I. Buch.

Brazil is on the march. Poverty rates and inequality have been declining for most of the last decade. The economy is stable and growing robustly. And according to Glauco Arbix, a sociology professor at the Universidade de São Paulo, a small but growing number of innovative Brazilian firms have been able to harness the opportunities provided by an integrated global marketplace.
