A periodization of the business cycles in the Brazilian economy


  • Alexandre Rands

    () (Datamétrica Consultoria, Pesquisa e Telemarketing)


The paper presents some coherence analyses to show that Brazilian economic time series are reasonably correlated in business cycle frequencies. It also gives a business cycle periodization for the period 1856-1985, which recognizes three types of cycles: Kitchin, Juglar and Kuznets cycles. In addition, the paper contrasts the cycles found with cycles previously identified in the literature.
