Fluxos de Renda Fiscal Versus Fluxos de Renda Via Comércio: o que há de novo na direção e magnitude da ação redistributiva do governo federal nas regiões brasileiras?
This paper deals with two questions. The first is to evaluate federal government transfers into Brazilian regions and states. The second aim is to recognize the actual direction taken by the flows of those government transfers over the 1970-2000 period in comparison with the income flows occurring among states through their interregional and international trade. Reassessing Furtado´s main hypothesis about how developed and underdeveloped regions are connected through trade - in the sense that the underdeveloped ones has to face the need to spend a huge amount of income to buy sophisticated wage goods and capital goods in the dynamic regions just to maintain a certain level of economic growth - this paper shows that in the 2000 year, the resources managed by federal government directed to the poor regions (North, Northeast and Center-West) were capable to overweight their current trade deficits.
