Brazil in 2022 is facing a crossroads in terms of the future of its public policies. Which way to go? Speakers in this important webinar will address economic policies that could simultaneously promote economic growth with greater social equity in Brazil. The debate's conclusions will advance us towards solutions to an old Brazilian dilemma: which new policies could best favor this growth and equity? And are these policies politically feasible?
