DESENVOLVIMENTO DESIGUAL: EVIDÊNCIAS PARA O BRASIL

By Flávia Chein, Mauro Borges Lemos and Juliano Junqueira Assunção

Abstract

The uneven development, or either, why growth rates differ between countries or regions, is still the main question of development economics, no matter which theory one follows: the convergence, coordination failure or market imperfection approach. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the process of Brazilian economy development over the 1970-2000 period, using Demographic Census data, in order to find signs of convergence or regional inequalities. The data analysis shows a uneven development among regions, that goes beyond the idea of differences between North/Northeast and the remainder of the country.
