Impactos dos encargos sociais na economia brasileira [Impacts of labor-related surcharges on the Brazilian economy]
The objective of this study is to analyze the impacts of a reduction in researched labor costs over some macroeconomic indicators. To do this, a multi-sector applied general equilibrium model was used. Six scenarios were built, including a reduction in social expenditures and increases in labor supply. It is noted that two aliquots had been used (25.10% and 45%) as representative of labor costs in Brazil. In general, the results indicate that the reduction of labor costs, considering the labor cost as 45%, is sufficient to generate new jobs.
