SALAMA, Pierre. Brazil and China: Paths of Strengths and Turmoil. Prob. Des [online]. 2017, vol.48, n.188, pp.9-28. ISSN 0301-7036.

Has China’s economic success brought about Brazil's economic failure? Or should we look elsewhere for the causes behind the disaster into which the South American nation is currently sinking? There is a path out of the rentier trap, but it is narrow. Brazilian administrations have preferred not to pursue loans, convinced that raw materials prices would keep rising, and that even without making structural changes, it would be possible to enact policies designed to reduce the wage gap and mitigate poverty, with no concern for declining competitiveness, and a blind eye to the top 1%, which is becoming wealthier. An increasingly asymmetrical relationship with China has made room for crisis, but not growth.

Palabras llave : Economic crisis; deindustrialization; investment; manufacturing industry; raw materials; economic relations.
