Brazils Enigma: Sustaining Long-Term Growth Case Solution

During the last decade, the future of Brazil as the world’s largest economy seemed safe. The rise of the middle class and expanding commodities had driven economic growth, GDP growth reached 7.5% in 2010. However, the high cost of doing business in Brazil, known as “Custo Brasil” was poorly manufactured in the country, while foreign investments threatened to overwhelm incoming Brazilian markets. Under President Dilma Rousseff, economic growth has stalled, and Rousseff’s government has struggled to find the right balance between reducing inflation, maintaining a flexible exchange rate, and improve the competitiveness of Brazilian exports.
