A economia popular solidária em Belo Horizonte: um estudo exploratório


  • Cândido Guerra Ferreira


  • Jonas de Oliveira Bertucci



The aim of the present article is to initiate an explanatory study on the alternative experiences that are developed in Belo Horizonte within the Solidarity Economics context. First, the current crisis of capitalism and the recent changes on the structure of work are discussed, revealing how these conditions stimulate the sprouting of alternative experiences and elucidate the necessity of a new model of development and social inclusion. After that, support programs to this kind of enterprise (developed by the agencies of the Municipal City hall of Belo Horizonte and local organizations) are presented. In the conclusion, proposals and suggestions of politics for empowering the solidarity economics are presented.
