Carta Capital

In this weekly magazine, I was invited to discuss my findings on the reasons behind the high real interest rates in Brazil. This research was later published in the International Journal of Political Economy in 2019.

Other websites and social medias also discussed the finding that, despite better macroeconomic conditions, Brazil displays higher real interest rates that other developing countries under inflation target. My suggestion that a politically influent rentier class has shaped interest rate setting was also discussed here, here and here.
