Example text

It naturally follows, first, that the (financial) markets, rather than the state, should address such economic problems as Neomonetarist dreams and realities in Brazil 31 the pattern of international specialization, industrial competitivity, employment generation and, more generally, the sources of long-term welfare gains for the majority. 5 At the macroeconomic level, neomonetarism is pragmatically based upon the purported advance of ‘globalization’, which is usually defined superficially and imprecisely as if it were an uncomplicated, relentless and unavoidable process (for a critique, see Radice 1998, 1999 and Rodrik 1998).

More broadly, according to the traditional way of thinking of all social science, would it not be more acceptable to say that pressure from interest groups and social classes, or popular demand, led to ill-advised decisions? No doubt I could have adopted this alternative. It is a safe one. But I would not be adding anything to the understanding of what happened in Latin America. First, it should be remembered that there are good and bad governments and so there are right and wrong decisions. Good governments are those whose politicians and officials take decisions that are mostly right, as good states are those that rely on institutions to help government leaders make more secure investment decisions in the private and in the public sector.

In sum, as long as domestic policies were ‘credible’, cheap foreign savings would finance rapid and sustained capital accumulation. Partly in the belief that foreign capital inflows provided a shortcut in the road to development, and partly out of conviction that the financial markets should play a more prominent role in resource allocation, the government abandoned its gradualist strategy in the second half of 1994. Most export incentives were eliminated, imports were liberalized further, and the authorities condoned the overvaluation of the real, in order to eliminate Brazil’s trade surplus: [T]he logic of the exchange rate policy is to reduce exports, increase imports and the current account deficit and, therefore, make the country import capital again.
