Trade liberalisation in Brazil: Creating or exporting jobs?
Using the growth accounting and factor content approaches, this article looks at the impact of trade liberalisation on the structure and level of employment in Brazil over the 1990-97 period. The results support the argument that trade liberalisation in developing countries have a negative short-term impact on employment — relatively small in Brazil's case - which tends to be outweighed, in the long run, by a more labour-intensive output mix.
