Develop an Informed Perspective on Brazil's Economy

Brazil's economic outlook has been varied, and its economic development has progressed in a cyclical fashion. Learn more about the recent economic history of Brazil.

Brazil's economic outlook has certainly varied throughout history, marked by periods of expansion and periods of uncertainty. But you might not realize that each period of growth in Brazil’s economy has been largely characterized by the importance of a single export item. Today the economy relies on coffee and sugar as well as nonagricultural products and services, including auto parts. And although Brazil has seen significant rates of economic growth in recent years, the country has one of the highest levels of income inequality in all of Latin America.
