This week on Explaining Brazil, The Brazilian Report’s weekly podcast, our journalists are tackling a tough subject: the sustainability of Brazil’s slow return to economic growth. With the recent revelations of efforts to cover up salmonella-tinged meat exports and Donald Trump’s trade restrictions, Brazil’s export-heavy economy has taken yet another hit this past week. Despite the federal government’s expectations of a 3 percent GDP growth for 2018, the OECD says that isolationist policies and trade barriers – plus market demands for a pension reform that seems increasingly unlikely – may continue to obstruct Brazil’s economic growth. Explaining Brazil is now available on Apple Podcasts.
