Do Progresso Ao Desenvolvimento: Vargas Na Primeira República


  • Pedro Cezar Dutra Fonseca


This work studies the evolution of Getulio Vargas' ideas, mainly the economic ones, during the First Republic, that is, before he became president. Therefore its approach begins when he affiliates himself with positivism and goes on until he clearly assumes the developmentism ideology which will be the signature of his subsequent actions. By focusing on the genesis of his thought we see the relative coherence in his defense of some ever present topics, such as anti-liberalism, pro-interventionism and the need for industrialization while other topics vary such as the ones concerning certain rules of economic policy: budget balance and credit and loans concessions, where we detect a breakup with the orthodoxy of the initial phase.
