Brazil: the international financial crisis and counter-cyclical policies
Silva Moreira, Tito Belchior
Ribeiro Soares, Fernando Antônio
Includes bibliographyThis article evaluates the effectiveness of the counter-cyclical measures adopted by the Brazilian government to mitigate the effects of the subprime mortgage crisis, by analysing the repercussions of monetary, fiscal and credit policies on several of the main macroeconomic aggregates. The empirical analysis showed that expansionary credit policy was decisive for increasing family consumption and aggregate output during the crisis. While expansionary monetary policy also helped increase aggregate production during that period, investment expenditure did not respond to counter-cyclical policies.
