About this book

Brazil is the most populous economy in Latin America with the second highest GDP among the emerging BRIC economies, after China, and the second per capita GDP among the BRIC economies after Russia.  The objective of this book is to provide a thorough historical, statistical, and institutional description of the factors that affect and are affected by Brazil’s international trade and integration with the world economy. It includes a most recent account of what is presently going on in Brazil and the type of economy from which Brazil is emerging. The authors use Brazil as a case study and explain both the process and the outcome of international economic integration by analyzing in each chapter a different contributing factor to the benefits and costs from Brazil’s economic interdependency with the world economy. This makes the reading of this book extremely valuable. The topics addressed in this book will increase the reader’s awareness of the institutional, economic, and cultural forces that shape the dynamism of Brazil’s international trade and integration with the world economy, and will continue to do so in future years.

Reviews

   
“A fascinating book exploring through authoritative analysis, innovative, well-conceived and compelling approaches the contributing forces in Brazil’s economic integration with the world-economy. Enables comparative analysis of Brazil with the BRIC emerging economies and the G7 advanced industrialized countries. Will be widely read by students and specialists of international business, economics, politics, geography, history and Latin American studies. An irreplaceable reference source for journalists, government and investment-portfolio analysts, policy-makers in agencies of international relations and economic development.” (Bingtao Song, Dean of the School of Economics, Henan University, Kaifeng, China)

“Grivoyannis brings together pioneering studies by the most astute native economics scholars of Brazil. A compelling account of international economic integration, rich with detail, firmly grounded on extensive primary source data, sound scholarship, and outstanding work in delving into Brazil’s role within the global economy. Grivoyannis addressed an important void in our knowledge, and deserves praise for that. He also refers to the threats for international economic integration by the 2018 trade wars.” (John Malindretos, Professor, William Paterson State University of New Jersey, USA)

“To understand the forces of globalization and Brazil's international economic integration you must first read this book. This is the only scholarly book available on this subject. A collection of pioneering and innovative set of studies, supported by rigorous analyses of statistical data, that brings together a remarkable group of Brazilian scholars to explain how and why the Brazilian economy moves through international trade to take its right place in the world economy.” (Ni Yuan, Associate Professor, University of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing, China)
