Les conséquences socio-économiques du coup d’État parlementaire au Brésil

By Lauro Mattei


This article analyses the most important social and economic consequences of the parliamentary coup which occurred in Brazil in 2015-16. It first exposes the economic situation before the coup, and then further evolutions with a specific focus on the strong economic crisis that affected a country confronted with the most important recession in its history. Political instability has dramatic consequences for several economic indicators (GDP growth rate, investment rate), and on several social indicators such as the unemployment rate (with more than 13 million people without jobs). At the same time, governmental social spending has been significantly cut, income is concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, and poverty is expanding at a higher level than in 2009, when the country was suffering from the world economic crisis
