    Description: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of the One Computer Per Student Program (Prouca), from the National Education Development Fund (FNDE), performance in the Brazil Test (Prova Brasil) and the National High School Examination (ENEM), both at school level, using the differences-in-differences method combined with the propensity score matching (PSM), and at the student level, using the PSM. The results showed that the program had a positive impact on students' performance in the final years of the Brazil Test (Portuguese and mathematics) and in the Enem language and codes and writing tests in 2010, as well as in all tests in 2011 - including the average of the exams - except in writing. At the school level, the program had a positive impact on the writing test and the average of the Enem assessments, the analysis between 2009 and 2010, and the natural science and writing tests as well as in the total average, in the research between 2009 and 2011.

    Description: We use data from the period 2009-15 to estimate the impact of the public policy aiming to decrease the taxes paid by companies over their payroll. The objective of this program, so called Less Taxes on the Payroll ("Desoneração da Folha de Pagamento"), was to burst the employment in the firms benefited by the tax cut. Overall our econometric results show no employment effect of this program.

    Description: Although there is agreement that the effect of broadband expansion on the economy, from an general overview, is positive; not an unanimous voice arguments that this impact be positive on all sectors. By applying a multivariate two way panel data model and estimated by bayesian methodology, this study aims to determine the effect of broadband expansion on the sectors of the economy. In order to take into account the geographical, social and economic differences among municipalities cluster analysis was employed in order to isolate groups of municipalities with approximate characteristics. The results illustrate that the impact of broadband is not positive for all sectors, being positive in the most dynamic and technology-intensive sectors such as the industrial and service sectors; and negative where this does not happen as in agricultural sector.

    Description: The objective of this paper was to analyze how the process of formation of a national identity of the solidarity economy movement in Brazil was developed around a mobilizing paradigm in defense of associated work and economic relations not restricted to the mercantile sphere. In this sense, we sought to identify some of its main contextual particularities, such as: its multiplicity of subjects, its organizational strategies and its political interactions. It is a pluralistic social movement, composed of distinct identities, connected around common principles of economic organization and social reproduction. The research allowed to identify a repertoire with diversified routines of collective action, and a pattern of interaction with the public power very active, taking advantage of important contextual political opportunities, especially with respect to governments permeable to these ideas in their agendas.

    Description: The Índice de Vulnerabilidade Social (IVS) and the Atlas da Vulnerabilidade Social (AVS) of the municipalities and metropolitan regions arise by an effort of selection, development and georeferencing of indicators that could express conditions of social vulnerability in the different scales of brazilian territory. Such conditions may emerge from plural factors that are part of the social issue, like the contexts of income and labour, education and health, mobility, habitation and sanitation. The IVS is a sinthetic index constructed with indicators that express fragilities of this social factors. The text below presentes the process of criation of the IVS from your conceptual, methodological and statiscal aspects and limitations. After this presentation, the work will show na analysis of some IVS results, as well as your dimensions and indicatores for the years of 2000 e 2010, in order to delineate the conditions of social vulnerability in the brazilian territory and exemplify ways of data analysis available in the AVS.

    Description: In the last decades, in an attempt to promote a model of agriculture of high productivity in the semiarid, successive governments have invested in the water infrastructure for the creation of several irrigation districts in the region. The purpose of this work is to analyze historically the evolution of irrigated agriculture and the policy options of the Federal Government in relation to its development in the Brazilian semiarid. From this portrait, the objective is to discuss the potential of irrigated agriculture as an inducer of agricultural development in the region and about different policy options for irrigation in the semiarid region. The success of these ventures in relation to the income and jobs generated, number of farmers settled, companies installed, among other factors, is diverse. There are those perimeters installed at the Petrolina and Juazeiro poles, which have developed over the decades until they reached the current stage, in which a modern and profitable agricultural production is turned to export. Otherwise, there are those that have not been completed and are partially operative.

    Description: The adequate availability of infrastructure and its related services, is mandatory condition for further development of the country's competitive advantages, intensifying the productive specialization. Due to limited financial capacity, in the course of the last three decades, there have been an increasing private participation in these sectors under privatizations, concessions and Private-Public Partnerships (PPPs). This work has the following goals: i) to summarize the evolution of the concession's system in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia and USA, aiming to identify the characteristics and alternatives developed by each country; and ii) to conduct an economic analyze of the concession contracts between the public and private entities, focusing on the economic regulation aspects. We found a learning historic evolution, based in continuous enhancement of the public policy and in different degrees of success. The economic regulation aims to evolve in several issues as the risk-sharing, application of incentives and penalization and selection criteria, in despite of the difficulties created by economic crises. It's worth highlighting some innovations as: (Brazil) use of an "Investment trigger" to require capacity expansion; Use of real demand to reset the Financial-Economic Equilibrium (EEF); Distribution of productivity gains (Factor X); Use of the concession length as a tool to reset the EEF; (Chile) MVPR as selection criteria and risk-sharing tool; MCC as exchange rate risk-sharing tool; (Mexico) use of an account to accommodate the facility return at the concession end; Penalties grading system; (Colombia) use of a Trust Fund; Minimum revenue guarantee mechanism (MGR); (USA) Legislation and financial innovations; DBFOM mechanism. Part of the foreigner experience may contribute for the improvement of the Brazilian concession model. Notoriously, learning from the Mexican and Colombian experience, there are some policies shouldn't be carried out in Brazil. From the Chilean, the MVPR stands out as a solid success, commonly replicated by other countries. It's worth noting that Brazil has the largest share of highways under concession. Furthermore, it's possible that the share is near to its own limit (around 25%), as the highways that can attract the private sector, based on the vehicle flow, are mostly already contracted. To the left part of the share there are two alternatives: sponsored PPP and/or public resources. The PPPs mechanism, which includes fee payment from the private investor and requires the highway availability, would involve a cross-subsidy between the financially viable and non-viable projects using a trust fund. This mechanism failed in Chile. Beyond that, it's worth noting that the use of cross-subsidy creates unwelcome economic signs and, since Adam Smith, it's well known that it doesn't stimulates good results. The majority of the highway network is not attractive for private investor, thanks to low intensity traffic, requiring the use of public resources.

    Description: The objective of this text is to present and address the spending on medicines of the Brazilian Public Health System (SUS) from 2010 to 2016 in a budgetary perspective. The analysis was based on the budget execution of the Ministry of Health and the health departments of the states, the Federal District and the municipalities, using data from two publicly available information systems, Siga Brasil and Siops. SUS spending on medicines rose from R$ 14.3 billion in 2010 to almost R$ 20 billion in 2015 (growth of 40%), falling to R$ 18.6 billion in 2016 (-7% in the last two years), in real terms, as a probable consequence of the economic crisis on these expenditures of subnational entities and greater role of the Ministry of Health to the medicines procurement and financing, including the Farmácia Popular Program. Between 2010 and 2016, SUS expenses with medicines registered growth of 30%. There was a significant increase in drug spending in the last seven years, with a special effort by the Ministry of Health, which started directly to execute the largest portion of the its budget for the purchase of these products. The Specialized and Strategic Components, as well as the Farmácia Popular Program, are very important for this increase. The incorporation of new medicines and the increase in lawsuits on pharmaceuticals may be driven the drug spending. The share of federal spending on pharmaceuticals in public health care spending rose from 11 percent in 2010 to 16 percent in 2016. The rising trend and the factors that drive higher spending can increase the drug spending which can compromise more significant portions of the Ministry of Health budget. That may reduce the availability of resources for the supply of other health goods and services to the population, because the federal budget is limited until 2036 by the Constitutional Amendment 95, approved in 2016.

    Description: This paper analyzes the relationship between social mobilization (of public and private actors) and the agenda of official participatory institutions in the field of solidarity economy. More specifically, it was sought to analyze, through participatory observation and documentary analysis, how this relationship occurred during the process of social-state interface promoted by the national conferences, especially the 3rd Conaes, which occurred in 2014 and triggered the elaboration of the National Plan of Solidarity Economy. In the end, it can be said that the conference process was appropriate for the part of the civil society involved in its theme as a link between its traditional mobilization repertoires and the opening of an official channel of contact with a representation of the public power.

    Description: Since the 1930s, Labour Justice has played very important roles in resolving labour disputes in Brazil. Nonetheless, the question that arises today is whether that justice can (or even should) continue with those roles - or whether it is possible to conceive some alternatives, which involve active participation of workers' organizations. This doubt arises from the analysis of a set of evidences, which point to the difficulties of this justice in order to present reasonable solutions to labour conflicts.

    Description: Regarding one of the most renowned mechanisms of social participation in the recent Brazilian democracy, this paper aims to offer a typological proposal for national conferences, considering the broadened definition established by the Decree no 8243/2014 and ex post aspects of conferential processes. Thus, databases hosted by Ipea were updated and expanded, reaching the conferences held until 2016 and its approved resolutions from 2011 to 2016. This data collecting process put together a documental collection of 154 national conferences realized from 1941 to 2016, besides a database of 5,369 resolutions approved in 28 of the 42 conferences finished in the past five years. This table was submitted to a lexical analysis through the IRAMuTeQ software, according to the ALCESTE method. Briefly, five lexical worlds were observed, each holding its own characteristics. Also, the position of a specific conference in the class map can change between its editions, and this lexical displacement can occur under different ways. Some hypotheses - about lexical displacement and implicit territoriality - could be raised for further research, after this analysis. Thus, the availability of data, in a public and accessible way, may be a stimulus to the development of studies about this phenomenon or, at least, a factor for reduction of costs and efforts involved in this data collection.

    Description: The purpose of the paper is to analyze Brazilian exports data between 1962 and 2016 by industries, verifying if the export structure has been modified in recent years towards a pattern more concentrated in primary products, due to a loss of competitiveness. Brazilian exports have been analyzed between these years by six industries. It has been utilized the Constant Market Share methodology in order to identify a change in competitiveness. The main conclusion is that competitiveness has increased in initial years, due to subsidies and government incentives to more technology intensive industries and also in the period of more intense trade openness. And the two more technology intensive industries, namely Machines and Equipment and Other Industries have seen a competitiveness loss in the final years. Therefore, changes in competitiveness seem to be strongly correlated with changes in manufacturing structure and industrial policies.

    Description: The object of this discussion text typology was developed with the purpose of classifying the Brazilian municipalities according your insertion scale in the process of urbanization. Has focused on changes in the relationships between the different parts of the territory, is under productive population and switching work flows and study, is about the setting and trend of socio-spatial organization of the territory. The methodology employed in the construction of the typology and its results were presented by Moura and Pêgo (2016), and unleashed a series of developments, whether on the part of the team, this analysis related to other indicators, either by other researchers institutions that come by adjusting the information base and expanding the universe of research for other countries in Latin America. Search, too, offer information and summaries that contribute to the development of strategies to support the formulation and implementation of urban, regional policy and territorial development in national, regional and range of the States of the Federation.

    Description: The present study - descriptive - aimed to investigate federal funds through the management block of the National Health Fund (FNS). The analysis was conducted for all Brazilian municipalities, at the most disaggregated level: Action/Strategy/Service, but also at the Component level. The analysis contemplated the years 2013 to 2016, period or the term of the mayors elected in the 2012. The authors also developed a brief analysis of selected indicators of the budget cycle, for the year 2014. The analysis of the sublevels of the management block of the FNS indicates that there is a great number of actions related to psychosocial care. However, the action that is most geographically widespread is the Program for financing actions of feeding and nutrition. Among the other supported actions, there are many that have a small number of benefited municipalities and/or small values involved. The spatial analysis indicates that there is no concentration in richer regions. On the contrary, many municipalities from the North Region and from Maranhão - one of the poorest states - obtained transfers through the block. This geographical spread is due more because of the component of Implementation of health actions and services, than because of the component of Qualification of SUS's management.

    Description: A subject that has gained prominence in the fields of political science and public administration is the Core of Government (CoG), that is, units and/or individuals responsible for the alignment and coordination of the main objectives of the president or first-minister. Although the topic has several names, a question still deserves to be better addressed: how do the planning, coordination and management of the Executive branch's priorities operate? However, the literature of CoG is still in early stage, especially in Brazil. In order to contribute to this debate, this paper develops a broad literature review with three primary goals: to present the concepts and findings of the international literature of core of government; to map the advances of the field of study of the Executive branch in Brazil and to indicate the future research agenda in the country. As a conclusion, the diversity of analytical strategies must be seen as constructive to the extent which there is a consensus that the frameworks' variations of the core of government are the rule, not the exception. In addition, the Brazilian case constitutes an excellent research laboratory on the Executive dynamics, due to its political-institutional particularities. Therefore, this research agenda tends to contribute to the description and explanation of how the political system operates and, above all, its effects on the decision-making processes and their outputs and outcomes in terms of public policies.

    Description: This paper analyzes the personnel expenditures in the Brazilian federal civil public service using administrative records from the Executive Branch. There are two contributions which are noteworthy because they may improve the understanding of policy makers regarding the evolution of those expenses in the upcoming years. First, we undertake simulations in order to assess the effects of the Proposal for Constitutional Amendment no 287. It should be noted that this exercise disregards that the federal govern will have to replace, to some extent, those people who are leaving the public service. Hence, in what follows, we formulate replacement scenarios to try and gauge the cost of different hiring strategies. Furthermore, we report the robustness of some results with respect to specific assumptions. In a nutshell, the results indicated that the reform will bring about economies for the public coffers over the next years, mainly due to the fall in the value of the survivors' pensions. Nonetheless, given the enormous amount of people that will become eligible for retirement, the replacement policy to be followed by the government has a substantial weight on the size the payroll will reach.

    Description: In 2016, the causal relationship between Zika virus infection in pregnant women and the occurrence of microcephaly in infants was confirmed. However, in the previous year, when an unexpected increase in the number of live births with microcephaly was observed in Brazil, this relationship was unknown in the scientific literature. Timely and coordinated actions - with the participation of national and international health authorities, health workers and researchers - allowed the Zika virus to be proven to be implicated in the causality of a congenital syndrome and Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) in a few months. This discussion paper aims to present a brief review of the history of the Zika virus epidemic and microcephaly in Brazil, from its emergence, through its evolution, to the policies and actions adopted to tackle it. Initially, the trajectory of the Zika virus in the world, from its discovery, in the Zika forest in Uganda, through its occurrence in Southeast Asia, until its emergence in Brazil is presented. Next, the process of declaring the microcephaly epidemic as a Public Health Emergency of National Concern (PHENC), by the Brazilian government, and Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), by the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as the processes triggered by those measures. One topic is dedicated to describe the findings that contributed to the confirmation of the causal relationship between Zika virus infection and the occurrence of microcephaly, as well as GBS. In another topic, the evolution of the microcephaly epidemic in Brazil is described, highlighting the nine-fold increase in the number of cases in 2015 compared to the average of the previous five years, and the occurrence of the epidemic peak in the last quarter of this year. Following the main actions aimed at confronting the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil are presented. Finally, challenges for the prevention and control of the Zika virus and the consequences in the Brazilian epidemiological scenario are highlighted. The role of the Brazilian National Health System (SUS) in mobilizing all sectors necessary to confront the Zika virus epidemic is pointed and the need for resources for the continuity and improvement of the surveillance and control actions of arboviral diseases, as well as the attention to affected families, is highlighted.

    Description: The IMF has always supported the free financial flows of capital, based on the concept that they improve economic growth in itself. This perception has debilitated since the global economic crisis beginning in 2007. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the evolution of the IMF's way of understanding this issue; weather it were or not an important improvement to guide the future exchange policies of their shareholders. Still, it's relevant to highlight the impacts of these flows on the volatility of the exchange markets, and consequently on the macroeconomic consistence of developing countries.

    Description: The paradigm of solidarity economy emerged at the end of the twentieth century as a proposal of self-management organization of work and production that involves a set of collective practices in search of new strategies of social inclusion and territorial development. Since then, it has become consolidated as a new field of research in several areas of scientific knowledge, not restricted to the social sciences. The purpose of this paper is to identify and characterize a scientific publication in indexed journals involving the field of solidarity economy in its various dimensions. It was tried to emphasize the methodological approaches used by the authors, the areas of knowledge and the main objects of analysis. This article aims at helping to understand a general picture about the production profile in the field of research, as well as new questions for new research, given a complexity of problems related academically related to the theme.

    Description: This paper was based on some previously delimited categories to guide a reflexive debate about the production on the institutionalized social participation in the scope of the public administration in Brazil. To that end, the analytical course was organized and developed around a new concept for a generic definition of these innovations in the field of democratic practice in the country, here called "participatory deliberation institutions" (PDI), each with its particular functional characteristics. For a better operationalization of this concept, the text is ordered from three analytical pairs: i) institutionalization and structural insertion of these innovations; ii) participation and representativeness; and iii) deliberation and effectiveness. On these pairs some arguments in the literature have been embedded and problematized in order to shed light on different issues that fall within this highly complex field, aiming also for a more precise detailing of the central characteristics in terms of the democratic advances and intrinsic contradictions found dispersed in the area debate. With this, it is believed that this text makes a relevant contribution to the mapping of the "master lines" of analysis on a field of practices that, despite the rich production already existing, still makes possible and even lacks other exploratory investigations, given the dynamism inherent in the very process of democratic consolidation.

    Description: This paper aims to identify the profile of innovation in Brazil in 2014, positioning the country in relation to the countries of the European Union. The paper analysed the indicators resulting from the innovation surveys carried out in Brazil and in these countries in 2014. Based on the results found in a study performed with the 2000 indicators, considering Evolutionary approach as the theoretical reference and the Oslo manual in its third version, the study points out to a dynamic of innovation based on typical processes of imitative economies. The results of the innovation, which presented innovation rates similar to the average of the countries analysed, as well as the low degree of novelty and the innovation based mostly in process innovative enterprises only, show that Brazil still has a profile similar to that found in 2000. The innovative process is also similar, despite the significant increase in the percentage of innovative enterprises that received public funding for innovation, with little cooperation and innovative efforts based on the acquisition of machines, equipment and software in detriment of research and development. The results of the study, which must to be in-depth, indicate the need to review and improve the innovation policy developed in the period 2000-2014.

    Description: Integrating information for the purpose of articulating social protection policies is hard work. It takes from political will, to capacity for institutional cooperation, to software development and direct communication channels with citizens. Because of that complexity, countries that pursue this objective often cooperate to exchange knowledge and the Brazilian case of Cadastro Único (Single Registry), the backbone of some 20 social protection programs, is frequently cited as a success case of integration. By means of the Cadastro Único experience, this text debates some of the essential elements to constitute such instruments of social policy integration. Bringing to light some of the challenges that are still on the way, to fulfill the promise of greater integration amongst social protection programs, as well as provide greater ease of access and respect to citizens.

    Description: This paper assumes that the recognition of the diversity of popular strategies for the collective generation of jobs and income is a key step in the creation of mechanisms to the promotion of their productive potential. The aim was to analyze the main information provided by the System database Solidarity Economy Information (Sies) to draw an overview of the operational structure of the social economy enterprises in Brazil. In this sense, the work focused more directly on information to provide a more comprehensive characterization of their organizational, economic and political dimensions, also trying to capture the structural differentiation factors among solidarity economy enterprises in the country. The data discussed reaffirm the hypothesis of structural heterogeneity that characterizes these enterprises.

    Description: This text aims to analyze the data of "solidarity finance" enterprises that make up the Information System of Solidarity Economy (Sies). The most common types of projects featured in this category are: community bank, credit cooperative and revolving fund. Each has different origing and operational structure. Such experiments are generally created in order to provide lines and credit channels more streamlined, taking into account the characteristics of this type of socioeconomic organization and enable viable alternatives to the official credit system and market. As in all branches of manifestation of solidarity economy, among solidarity finance enterprises there are also different examples of successful actions, as well as structural factors of precariousness.

    Description: In June 1961 the American economist Douglass North visited Brazil for 3 weeks, for a mission organized by the US State Department and Instituto Brasileiro de Economia (IBRE-FGV). The goals of North's Brazilian mission were to evaluate Sudene's plans for the Northeast - which involved meeting Celso Furtado -, to give lectures on regional growth and assess the quality of economics courses in the country. This paper deals with the "meeting" between North and Furtado in the broad sense of the word, that is, not only the actual meeting of June 20 1961, but also the meeting of their respective ideas about how to develop the economy of the Northeast. It is based on new material formed by original documents of the "Douglass North Papers" collection held at Duke University Library.

    Description: In Brazil, the Technical Assistance and Rural Extension services originated in the late 1940s, when the Association of Credit and Rural Assistance was created in the state of Minas Gerais in 1948. The purpose of this work is to analyze the evolution of such service in Brazil since its creation and its relation with family agriculture, culminating with considerations about the recent National Policy of Technical Assistance and Rural Extension (Pnater). For this, a brief history of rural extension in Brazil is presented, as well as a summary of the current situation of this service in the country and the discussion about the reformulation of the public rural extension service, main service provider for family farmers. The actual construction of this new public system is still almost entirely to be done. To rebuild at least part of its capacity and to build partnerships with non-state entities for this purpose, while incorporating new concepts into the process, is not a trivial task. There are doubts about the state's capacity to conduct this work, as well as the results that will be obtained from this.

    Description: The main purpose of this paper is to calculate the effective total factor productivity (ETFP) of the Brazilian agricultural and industrial sectors during 1990-2009. The results are the following: all sectors have reached high ETFPs, with a few exceptions; however, the ETFPs have not mobilized many or all sectors of their supply chains. So the main policy recommendation is the development in Brazil of regulatory and contract legal rules that constitute actual and appropriate benchmarks.

    Description: The objective of this text is to present an overview of the trajectory of the infrastructure policies in Brazil in the recent period (2005-2013). In order to do so, it highlights the main efforts and advances towards the resumption of the role of the federal government in the sector, as well as it points to the limits and obstacles that contributed to the production of incomplete results and partial achievements in terms of project implementation and effectiveness. The analysis of the historical trajectory draws from three interrelated analytical categories: political-institutional environment, institutional arrangements and instruments of public action. The main conclusion is that the advances in the development of instruments and arrangements were incomplete and insufficient. Incomplete because they failed to overcome some of internal limitations (such as planning failures and decision-making processes isolated from civil society). Insufficient because, even if they were fully developed, they would still face difficulties in counterbalancing external constraints and the governance challenges imposed by the Brazilian political-institutional environment (such as a fragmentation of the state apparatus and the short-term interests of political actors inside the logic of the political system).

    Description: In Brazil, it has been difficult to elaborate governmental planning surpassing the four-year spectrum from the Pluriannual Plans. Despite the fact of long-term planning attracting a wide range of sectors, it still occupies a small space in both political and State agendas. Hence, the present study intends to initiate a new cycle of debates regarding the issue as it presents questions and factors to subsidy long-term strategies. Using methodological tools from Strategic Prospective, we present trends and uncertainties regarding social problems in the Brazilian case - contemplating topics such as demographic changes, inequalities, urban and social infrastructure, years of schooling of the population and the use of technology in education. This study is part of Brazil 2035, a project whose objective is to provide subsidies to formulate long-term development strategies for Brazil through Prospective Scenarios. Thus, this text presents a preliminary stage of a prospective process regarding the identification and analysis of the main variables. We do not intend to be conclusive; but rather to present some key factors and questions, which will affect Brazilian development until 2035.

    Description: Investment funds are key institutions for understanding the dynamics of a country's financial wealth and for analysing the interaction between wealth owners and the macroeconomic policy management. This text has three fundamental objectives: firstly, it seeks to construct a profit proxy of the investment fund industry for the analysis of its evolution in Brazil, from 2003 to 2015. The first task is to conceptualize it, the second is its measurement under the various possible cuts, given the availability of data. Secondly, it seek to analyse how the wealth managed by the sector moved, under three distinct lenses: by class of funds, by type of assets and by segment of investor. Finally, the changes in the portfolios managed by the five largest fund managers - which in December 2015 were responsible for the management of 70% of the total net assets of the investment funds - BB-DTVM, BRAM (Bradesco Asset Manager), Caixa, Itaú and Santander are examined. The final section of the paper brings the main conclusions of the research.

    Description: The objective of this study is to predict the potential broadband market in Brazil. This task is done by combining information from two national databases: the Demographic Census of 2010 and the National Survey by Household Sample (Pnad) of 2015. The Pnad 2015 is used to estimate the probability of the household accessing internet by broadband technology using a logit regression. The broadband market is predicted using the estimated model with the same covariates found in the Demographic Census 2010. The prediction indicated a potential market of 45 million households, an additional of 6 million households in relation to the current situation. The new size of the broadband market is estimated if there is a 10% increase in the average penetration of broadband services in the main metropolitan regions. In this scenario, it is observed that the new market reaches 50,7 million households.

    Description: The Bolsa Família programme (PBF) has, since its inception, given priority to women as the recipients of the cash benefit. This arrangement makes the connection between the PBF and changes in gender relations the object of several research interests. The purpose of this text is to discuss the findings of this research. The conclusion is that, although its design can reinforce the idea that caregiving is a female responsibility, the PBF leads to the questioning of male authority and broadens the social networks of women, with the potential to yield changes in the structure of gender relations.

    Description: Since the 1930s, the Brazilian State has built a national system of labour relations. In the following decades, this system underwent many changes, as well the country itself (which became urbanized, industrialized etc.). At the present time, there is a new wave of changes in the labour relations system - which will be analyzed, in this article, only in its aspects more directly related to the work realm. This new wave, initiated with a set of legislative proposals, will alter the balance between workers' protections and freedoms of employers. Assuming the perspective of the former, this article analyzes the possibilities opened by Law no 13.467/2017 (recently approved), as well as its problems and contradictions.

    Description: The Household Budget Survey from IBGE is the only source of microeconomic data on savings of Brazilian families. As this research has been carried out at intervals of at least five years, it is important to discuss and empirically assess whether the estimated models with latest lagged research data are able to produce reliable projections of aggregate current savings rate and future of Brazilian families from current observations of predictive variables that are available from annual frequency for researches.Alternative projection models are estimated with predictive variables suggested by the literature on consumption and savings. One is based on the procedure used by the IBGE to project the aggregate savings rate. Other uses of non-linear structure of Heckman model to take into account the fact that a proportionally high amount of families have zero savings. As the work is focused on the aggregate savings rate, an important methodological aspect is that the models need to be estimated with the weight of each family given by its sample participation on aggregate income.The decompositions of Blinder-Oaxaca and of Neuman-Oaxaca show that the difference between the saving rates estimated with the versions of the POF 2002-2003 and 2008-2009 has been explained in greater extent by changes in the estimated coefficients of the projection models, leaving a secondary role for the effect of changes in sample means of predictive characteristics. This result undermines the use of models estimated with POF data in the projection of aggregate savings rate of Brazilian households, since only the second effect is observed in years without availability of POF.

    Description: This text discusses the dynamics of cultural funding in the Brazilian federal government from 1995 to 2013. It describes the historical context and faces some of the arguments present in the public debate on the principles that can justify reforms in the administration of culture and reconfiguration of the stock financing model public in the area. Moreover, it faces discussion of these general ideas in the light of the plurality of criteria and instruments used by the public administration. The dialectic between general ideas, tools and practices allows for more precise delimitation between the financing paradigms or models.

    Description: The common sense remarks that Brazilian public service has a chronic oversize, a characteristic of a patronage and entrenched patrimonialism and partisanship. This paper shows evidences that refute this common sense. In addition, the paper offers recommendations and proposals to overcome this vulgarized perception. The responsibility to discuss the role, image and also the size of Brazilian State is a strategic challenge to move forward to the improvement of public services, with the guarantee of rights and inclusive development. Aligned with the idea of active transparency, it is proposed to offer regular and proper information about Brazilian public service, through systematic processes of accountability; the formulation of a ten-year plan of organization, qualification and innovation of public service; and the creation of an observatory of public service.

    Description: The present study has the main objective to analyze the labor market dynamics in the Matopiba region and to compare it with the evolution of the Brazilian agribusiness labor market as a whole. The paper is part of a broader research project that aims to make a diagnosis of the socioeconomics and the institutional conditions of the Brazilian Northeast and North macro-regions, in order to subsidize the implementation of public policies. Using the data from the Pesquisa Nacional por Amostra de Domicílios (Pnad) Contínua between the first quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2016, it was clear that, on the one hand, although agribusiness generated an increasingly smaller number of jobs within the sector itself, on the other, managed to boost the labor market of Matopiba, increasing the average income of the employed population of the region and improving the local services sector. Behind this seemingly contradictory dynamic there is the success of Brazilian agribusiness, which, through more capital-intensive and labor-saving technologies, has been able to increase its productivity and generate increasing income, freeing up workforces to other sectors. In Matopiba, the income generated by agribusiness has warmed the service sector, which in turn has boosted the local labor market, allowing the incorporation of a larger volume of employees. Although this dynamic was clear in Matopiba, in the rest of the country it is possible to observe only that agribusiness reduced the employed population in its activities.

    Description: This text undertakes to examine two questions. First, the text considers the intellectual roots of two celebrated and discussed concepts - in Brazil and in the world, specifically the social function of property - enshrined in the 1988 Constitution - and the right to the city, which is guaranteed by Law 10.257 of 2001 (the City Statute). This contribution suggests that the union of these two ideas in Brazil is curious from an intellectual point of view. This is because the social function of property originated, in part, as an intellectual reaction to the extremism of the socialist (and in turn, communist) ideas of the era, while the right to the city has been formulated by a Marxist intellectual. Nevertheless, in the Brazilian articulation of these ideas, the two ideas are considered complementary, and with success. Second, and in a demonstration of the successful intellectual marriage of the two ideas, the text examines more than thirty cases from Brazilian courts alleging violations of the right to the city and the social function of property. While there exists a common perception that Brazilian courts are conservative with respect to urban matters, the evidence of this research shows a high level of awareness about these concepts on the part of the courts, which defend the rights of population to them - concluding that property needs both to respect its social function and that all citizens have a right to the city. The text concludes with the suggestion, therefore, that, in the future, the mobilization in favor of these concepts needs to come from other social sectors, using the favorable court decisions to realize the aspiration of the two concepts.

    Description: There is a belief among Brazilians that the country pays too much tax and that this value does not return to society with the provision of good public services, that the state inefficiency coupled with corruption consumes the generated resources. However, the Brazilian society needs to fully understand the composition of public spending and its evolution over the past few years. This study, therefore, aims to show the evolution of public accounts between the years 2010 and 2015. The economic slowdown and the increase of mandatory expenditures led Brazil to a primary surplus of R$ 127 billion in 2011 to a R$ 115.7 billion deficit in 2015. And reverse the situation is not as simple, since cutting government spending is limited: according to the Budget Law Project 2017, 93.2% of the expenditures are mandatory or not likely to be skimped. An analysis of government spending shows that it is time for society as a whole to discuss the problem and, from the knowledge of the composition and the evolution of public accounts, agree on a new standard distribution of their social resources.

    Description: The study seeks to analyze the importance of agricultural production in Matopiba, comprising areas in the states of Maranhão, Tocantins, Piauí and Bahia, for economic development. The agricultural economic dynamics of Matopiba region becomes central in guiding the decisions of private actors in promoting regional development and the most appropriate formulation of public policies to local realities. The scientific problem here is to question whether the investments mobilized are in fact sustained, and in what extent agribusiness has the strength to lead developing poor states and with a high population density in rural areas. The hypothesis of this study is understood that agricultural policy can be an important tool for development, reducing inequalities and promoting sustainable management of natural resources in this region.

    Description: In accordance with the Brazilian Forest Legislation, nearly 12.5 million hectares of native vegetation must be restored over the next 20 years in the country. The feasibility of this process will depend on the existence of a supply of seeds and native seedlings with adequate quality, diversity and quantity to be planted in these areas. This text aims to present a public policy proposal to promote the production of seeds and native forest seedlings to support Brazil's environmental regulation. A historical analysis of the country's forest policy shows that there have been few official incentives for structuring the chain of forest restoration, unlike the reforestation with exotic species. Among the main challenges encountered in the production growth of seeds and native seedlings are the lack of a continuous demand and the bureaucratic obstacles to its commercialization. To overcome such challenges it was proposed the creation of a public policy of government procurement, to which it was suggested the name Seeds and Native Seedlings Acquisition Program. The elements of the proposal were based on the example set by the Foods Acquisition Program and on the experience of the networks of Brazilian seeds. The proposed program will allow the purchase of seeds and native forest seedlings directly from family farmers without bidding, which gives it a social and environmental character. Besides supporting the environmental regulation, it will generate employment and income for family farmers.

    Description: This article presents a simulation of Public-Private Partnership for the maintenance and operation of all paved federal highways. To do so, we evaluate the distribution of benefits and costs between taxpayers, government and road users as a way to set toll values bankable by users, easing the tax burden on all taxpayers with regard to spending on highways. Then, we propose the use of a concession model in which part of the concessionaire's revenue comes from toll collection and part from payment for availability by the government. In addition, the concessionaire must pay the government a grant value per vehicle, so that the total amount of the grant is variable with the demand. Such a mechanism, in addition to reducing the demand risk allocated to the concessionaire, allows cross-subsidization of highways with high traffic volume for the low volume ones. Considering the average costs of operation and maintenance of highways under concession, we evaluate if the collection with the proposed tolls would be sufficient to cover the costs. The results indicate that even considering only the roads not conceded yet, generally low traffic, the fiscal costs of such a model would be smaller than the average expenditures executed by DNIT with maintenance and operation of federal highways. And also ensure higher level of quality, with direct benefits to users and indirect ones to the whole society.

    Description: The objective of this article is to understand the main socioeconomic determinants of family cohabitation and new household formation by young adults in Brazilian urban areas. Methodologically, the study adapts the models of De Vos (1989) and Granado and Castillo (2002) to the Brazilian case, using microdata from Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics - IBGE 2009 National Household Survey - PNAD. The work also intends to verify to what extent the family cohabitation and new household formation are related to the conditions prevailing in the housing market, in order to subsidize the elaboration of housing policies more appropriate to the needs of the young population.

    Description: This study aims to present a model for economic evaluation of the expansion of the broadband network for the Brazilian municipalities. This is done taking into account not only the economic return, but also the cost of expanding the network. Return is calculated from three criteria of prioritization: size of population, HDI, and potential market. Once one of these criteria is chosen, the effect on certain variables of interest, such as the effect on the product, access to the poorest population, etc., is estimated. To determine the potential demand of broadband, we estimated model combining two databases: PNAD 2015 and Census 2010. The effect of broadband on municipal GDP was obtained using the panel data model. To evaluate the cost to expand network we the applied the solution of the minimum generating tree from the graph theory. It was observed that the criterion based on the potential market is the alternative that generates greater economic return. Also the results obtained based on the size of the population are close to this one, whereas the prioritization by the municipal HDI is the criterion that presents the worst performance that penalizes the poor and the extremely poor population.

    Description: Although in the last decade, Brazil has experienced improvements in its major labor and social security indicators, a significant portion of the workers are still excluded from the social insurance system - group in which the self-employed workers are prevalent. In this context, the Brazilian Federal Government implemented measures aiming the extension of the social insurance coverage among the self-employed. These initiatives have been the subject of a few studies - with different scopes and validity levels -, which presented some evidence of their contributions to the positive results observed during the time-period considered. The results observed in favor of this group of self-employed may seem relevant even in the scenario of generalized increase in the coverage level, but it was not the purpose of this article to establish causal links. In any case, the proportion of workers with erratic evolution of their contributions flow seems relevant and it challenges the effectiveness of the coverage at the time of collecting benefits. The results suggest that public policies aiming the extension of coverage should add to their goals, in addition to increasing in the number of contributors and the proportion of insured workers, the increase in the contribution density. Also, it is suggested the urgency of a thorough impact evaluation of the public policies considered in this discussion paper, also considering the possible migration between the pension plans focused on the so-called Individual Contributors, so any adverse effects on the quality of the labor insertion can be assessed.

    Description: Fundamental education is mainly provided by municipalities according to a decentralized model in which local management transforms resources transferred by the federal government into educational results that are centrally monitored. This mode of operation is conducive to the evaluation of management efficiency, since it favors the existence of a variety of management models with performance measured in a homogeneous way. We used the data from Prova Brasil from the years 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013 to estimate measures of economic efficiency of municipal basic education, which considers as input the expenditure per student, and measures of student and school performance in order to eliminate the effect of student families. We obtained descriptive results of the behavior of schools and municipalities, and measures of economic efficiency that proved to be robust for different selections of municipalities, and persistent intertemporally. These measures show substantial differences between municipalities and states.

    Description: Owner-occupied housing and public infrastructure services are a relevant part of the income distribution whose impacts have not yet been adequately studied, at least not from the distributive point of view. This paper suggests a way to find the market value for these services using hedonic prices. While far from new, this methodology is nevertheless useful in assigning values to these services. The paper uses Brazilian data from 1995, 2004, and 2014 to impute rental values for owner occupied housing and the associated infrastructure services. The results are that imputation of housing services considerably reduces inequality and that public infrastructure services have become more progressive as their expansion brings these services to increasingly poorer households.

    Description: The objective of this text is to discuss the relevance of the production and use of cost information from the Brazilian Public Health System (SUS), as an input for decision making processes on its financing and management. Technical-scientific literature on the subject is considered to present concepts and discuss methodological questions involving the costing and health cost management. The relevance of cost information to the SUS is discussed under two aspects: financing and management of the system, dealing with two perspectives for the use of information, that of the system managers at the three government spheres and that of the health units' managers. International experiences on the production and use of cost information are presented to illustrate some possibilities that may be considered for the Brazilian case, as well as national experiences developed by hospitals and federal government agencies. Finally, some recommendations for the systematic production and use of cost information in SUS are presented as initial reflections and subsidies for the formulation of a national policy on the subject.

    Description: This article estimates the market value of public education by comparing standardized test scores of students in public and private schools. The idea is to assign to the education of each public school student a market value equivalent to the tuition paid by private school students with similar test score results. The implementation requires an expenditure survey, or other database to provide information on tuitions, and standardized test scores available for both private and public schools. This article uses Brazilian test score data, which are particularly good. The main results are not surprising. Pre-school, primary, and secondary education are all highly progressive government transfers. Furthermore, since their market value is superior to public expenditures in each of these educational levels, they are also welfare enhancing. The flip side is that public higher education is both highly regressive and welfare reducing.
