Special Issue on: "Econometric and Computational Applications for the Brazilian Economy"

Guest Editor:
Ricardo Ramalhete Moreira, Federal University of Espírito Santo, Brazil

Brazil has one of the most important developing economies today. In the last few years, the Brazilian economy has emerged as a big player in commodities markets and the manufacturing sector. Despite a democratic government and strong regional diversification, however, Brazil has challenges ahead in order to maintain and improve its share of the global economy.

From the macroeconomic aspect, Brazil should make economic policy more predictable and efficient so as to allow for lower inflation rates and higher GDP growth in the long term; from the microeconomic one, regulatory, educational and other sectoral policies are important to increase companies’ confidence and private investments that generate higher productivity rates over time.

The special issue invites high-quality original research papers on the topic. It is an attempt to explore and bring together practical, state-of-the-art applications of computational techniques and econometrics with a particular focus on Brazil.
