Reforma dos bancos federais brasileiros: programa, base doutrinária e afinidades teóricas


  • Vidotto, Carlos Augusto


This article focuses on the reform of the Brazilian federal banks throughout the nineties. Preliminarily, the measures compounding the reform and their impacts on the credit supplied by those financial institutions are presented. The existence of a program conducting that set of measures, so far insufficiently taken in account, is then put in evidence. Next, the article identifies some antecedents of the ´doctrinal´ basis of the program and points out the ones concerned with public provincial banks and federal ones. Based on these results, the article recovers the economic theory background associable to each stage of the reform.
