Abstract

This paper presents an estimate of fixed tangible wealth for the Brazilian economy in the period 1950-1998. Net capital stock and consumption of fixed capital are derived by the perpetual inventory method (PIM) employing a geometric depreciation function. Despite the criticism to the PIM methodology, it is used for all countries with capital stock estimates and recommended by UN (1993).
