Energy, bio fuels and development : comparing Brazil and the United States by Edmund Amann( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines an issue which could not be more topical: the economic, social, and environmental implications of concerted attempts to diversify energy sources away from fossil fuels. Bringing together leading academics and researchers from the UK, the USA, and, Latin America, these chapters focus on the contrasting experiences of two major economies; one developed and the other, a rapidly expanding emerging market. A key area of concern surrounds the causes and consequence of the contrasting routes to biofuel production represented by sugar cane (in Brazil) and corn (in the US). The book also places the recent biofuels drive in perspective by discussing the broader energy policy context. Regard here is paid to attempts to substitute foreign with domestically-produced fossil fuels. In focusing on the experiences of two of the world's most important energy producers and consumers, interesting policy lessons emerge. It is argued that these have implications for other economies pondering a switch to renewable energy sources

The regional impact of national policies : the case of Brazil by Werner Baer( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brazil is a country of continental proportions whose gross domestic product is unevenly distributed among its various regions. The impact of general domestic economic policies has often been perceived as not being regionally neutral, but as reinforcing the geographic concentration of economic activities. This detailed book examines the regional impact of such general policies as: industrialization, agricultural modernization, privatization, stabilization, science and technology, labor, and foreign direct investment. Written by recognized and respected scholars, this book fills a significant gap in the current literature on regional development in Brazil. Researchers and students in economics, economic history, political science and regional studies, and others interested in the economics of transition to a market system will find this comprehensive collection an invaluable resource.-- Provided by publisher
Brazil's economy : an institutional and sectoral approach by Werner Baer( )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past century has witnessed profound transitions in Brazil's economy: from a surge of industrialization connected to export economy, to state projects of import-substitution industrialization, followed by a process of neoliberal global market integration. How have Brazilian entrepreneurs and businesses navigated these contexts? This comprehensive text explores the institutional and sectoral structure of the Brazilian economy through a collection of new case studies, examining how key institutions work within Brazil's specific economic, political and cultural context. Offering a long term evolutionary perspective, the book explores Brazil's economic past in order to offer insights on its present and future trajectory. The contributions gathered here offer fresh insights into representative sectors of Brazil's economy, from aerospace to software, television, music and banking, paying particular attention to sectors that are likely to drive future growth. Chapters include questions about the roles of foreign and state capital, changes in market regulation, the emergence of new technologies, the opening of markets, institutional and organizational frameworks, and changing management paradigms. When examined together, the contributions shed light not only on Brazilian business history, but also on the country as a whole. The Brazilian Economy offers fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in: Latin American Economics; the business history of the region; and in doing business in present day Latin America
