Ideas Economy: Brazil The next level of competition


  Ideas Economy: Brazil
The next level of competition
October 4th 2012, São Paulo
Synopsis

The Economist’s Ideas Economy: Brazil event will explore the most important issues affecting the social and economic future of Brazil, including the role of finance, innovation, entrepreneurship, human capital, infrastructure, design, culture, and policy.

In recent years, the economy of Brazil has grown to unprecedented heights and also experienced a great leveling. Throughout this transition, Brazil has emerged as the world's sixth largest economy, surpassing the United Kingdom in 2011. With two global sporting events—the Olympics and the World Cup—accelerating the transformation of Brazil into a rich-world country, Latin America’s premier democracy is now a highly competitive and resource-rich global economic force.

While the recent history of Brazil is a success story—one about rediscovering democratic traditions and lifting millions out of poverty—there are still significant obstacles to Brazil’s ability to create a sustainable model for economic growth. Creaking physical infrastructure combined with weak technological infrastructure, extreme commodity dependence, protectionist economic policies, corruption, environmental conflict, and a huge informal sector that limits productivity, are preventing Brazil from fully maximising its global competitiveness.

What concrete actions can the government and private sectors take to fuel innovation, productivity, and entrepreneurship? Can Brazil find the right formula for investing in education, technology, and infrastructure? And what is the right balance between supporting the legacy systems that led to Brazil's dramatic rise and developing the pillars of a new economy? Chaired by The Economist’s Americas editor, Michael Reid and São Paulo bureau chief, Helen Joyce, Ideas Economy: Brazil is an annual, live-event version of an Economist special report on Brazil. It is designed for a wide range of business leaders, entrepreneurs, decision-makers, public officials, global executives, and members of the ideas economy who are invested in the future of Brazil.
