Os Fundamentos Do Estado Desenvolvimentista Brasileiro: A Experiência Do Partido Republicano Riograndense (Prr) Durante A Primeira República


  • Luiz Roberto Pecoits Targa


Along the Brazilian transition to capitalism (1888-1930) the "gaúcho" state and society created the bourgeois state and therefore were able to develop the foundations of the "Brazilian developmental state". These phenomena were never recognized because the history of the meridional society was always viewed as peripheral. Thus the most important and central fact in the history of the Brazilian social formation - the bourgeois revolution during the transition to capitalism - could not be ascribed to the region. The creation of the bourgeois state which toppled the framework of the oligarchic and patrimonial state required the accomplishment of three fundamental tasks: the creation of an autonomous state facing the region's ruling class; the separation between the public and the private spheres; a reform to abandon the fiscal structure of the oligarchic, patrimonalist, mono-agricultural exporter state. These tasks were accomplished between 1892 and 1913 by the government of the positivist republicains who were in office between 1892 and 1930.
