– The government’s economic team succeeded in approving in the National Congress some of the priority agendas of its 2021 economic agenda
*) In 2021, the economic team led by Minister Paulo Guedes achieved important victories in Congress. He managed to do, for example, the Brazilian Aid, through the controversial PEC dos Precatório.
Among the victories, we must also mention the privatization of Eletrobras, which finally came out, even with a few “turtles”. The commemoration is however still timid, as there are still some steps to be taken before the process is definitively concluded.
But, of course, not everything worked. The economic team was unable to carry out certain important reforms, in particular administrative and fiscal ones. In addition, the privatization of Correios remains at a standstill.
This is the first of two episodes of the 15 Minutes podcast which discusses the victories and defeats of the Bolsonaro government’s economic team throughout 2021.
To make this assessment, the guest is Isabelle Barone, from the Economics writing of Gazeta do Povo. In this first episode, she talks about the victories of Paulo Guedes and his team.
