Die politische Ökonomie der Rentenreform für Beamte in Brasilien

In: List Forum Band 32


  • Christoph Dilk


The ability of governments to initiate and pursue reforms against powerful opposition has been limited in the past in Brazil, as well as in Germany. However during the first year of the Lula presidency in Brazil, the government succeeded in initiating and implementing an exremely improtant but also very controversially discussed reform. This paper analyzes the success factors of the 2003 public prenson reform in Brazil from a political economy perspective. Four central elements that made the reform successful can be identified. Finally, looking at the most recent reform initiatives of the Lula administration and taking the politico - institutional conditions into consideration, the chances of success for future reforms in Brazil will be evaluated.(Original text only available in german language)
