The BRICS Contingent Reserve Agreement as an alternative to Brazil

Contribution of each state to the BRICS Contingent Reserve Agreement. Em momentos de crise econômica global é importante que os países possam contar com rápido acesso a divisas internacionais a fim de manter sua capacidade de pagamentos internacionais. Em grande medida é essa disponibilidade de reservas que o Fundo Monetário Internacional (IMF) disponibiliza. O problema, in this case, é que o FMI só libera os recursos mediante o compromisso e implementação de uma série de políticas de austeridade fiscal. O objetivo do FMI é garantir que o país que toma o empréstimo tenha capacidade de devolver o recurso, mas isso costuma levar a um aprofundamento da crise econômica interna (no que é chamado pelos economistas de ações pró-cíclicas). In 2014, num movimento de criação de alternativas ...

How the British see their role in the developing world 2030 - and how they are preparing to exercise it

The United Kingdom has just released a document which I think is very important to read, fundamental even, for those who are willing to understand the game that the great powers are playing in the international arena. In him, revisions of integrated defense and security policies are presented, Britain's international relations and development[1]. The document has, in the introduction, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's vision for the United Kingdom in the year 2030. In summary, it is an optimistic view of your country's role in the world, who sees the UK as one of the most influential nations on the planet, with a strong economy and that, due to the emphasis on the adoption of scientific and technological innovations, will be better equipped to face an even more competitive world..

The agreement between the European Union and Mercosur

Authors: Bruna Barrento and Maria Julia Zito In the South American scenario, the Southern Common Market (Mercosur) consists of a customs union between Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. In this sense, the members of this agreement have common external tariffs. Whereas in the European scenario, the European Union consists of a political and economic union with free movement of people, services and capital between 27 economies of Europe. It should be added that such unions constitute a mostly economic relationship. In addition, in 2019, the EU presented itself as Mercosur's second largest trading partner. Thereby, it was decided to establish a macrostructure to support the relationship between the two blocks. Thus, since 1999, negotiations have started on the elaboration of an agreement that f ...

Brazil loses space to China in South America

Presidents Jair Bolsonaro (Brazil) e Xi JinPing (China) Brazil is a country with a disproportionate size in relation to its neighbors, especially in economic terms. The result of this is that the country ends up playing "of course" a gravitational force, making the other South American countries end up having their economies very dependent on the Brazilian economy. This condition was no different even when considering the other major economy in the region: Argentina. Historically the argetinos had in Brazil the biggest destination of its exports. In September and October 2019 China occupied that primacy, being the main destination for Argentine exports. It was a small difference and lasted only those two months, what seemed to be something transitory. More to rea ...

The importance of the Malvinas Islands to Brazil

Falklands/Falklands Positioning Map At the end of 2019 began the operation of a commercial air route between São Paulo and the Malvinas Islands. This flight is not simply the launch of yet another route for commercial exploration, but one more step - almost symbolic - on an important change taking place between Argentina and the Malvinas Islands (or Falklands, depending on the point of view). During the 12 years of the Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández governments (2003 a 2015) the relationship between Argentina and the United Kingdom, around the Malvinas / Flaklands was more dependent on the discussion of sovereignty and the increasing militarization of the South Atlantic. Under the government of Mauricio Macri, there was a tendency to change this form of relationship. Already in 2016 the agreement was concluded....

The political defeat of neoliberalism in Argentina and the Brazilian future

The victory of Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner in the presidential elections in Argentina represented a huge blow to the center-right movements in Latin America. Among the many journalistic articles in the local press and specialized international analyzes that have been circulating since the primary elections in Argentina - last August and which indicated an inevitable defeat by Macri - there is a consensus around the economic failure of his government, mainly due to the increase in inflation and public debt. [1] The fact that analysts link Macri's defeat to neoliberal economic policies sparks a warning to the current Brazilian government that relies on neoliberal radicalism as an economic policy. The failure of Macri's economic neoliberalism occurred although he ...
