In this video, I present my paper “Is financialisation of everyday life different in developing and emerging economies? A mixed-method study of financial inclusion in Brazil”.
Blog post: Why financial inclusion is not the solution to poverty in developing countries￼
In the SOAS blog, I discuss the effects of financial inclusion on poverty in low- and middle-income countries. Whereas the policy can help the poor to be more included in society, it cannot generate mass exit from poverty.
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.
