During the turbulent years 1976-96, aggregate data for Brazil appear to show only small changes in mean income, inequality, and incidence of poverty -- suggesting little change in the distribution of income. But a small group of urban households -- excluded from formal labor markets and safety nets -- was trapped in indigence.

It finds that the Brazilian economy is bouncing back and is achieving more balanced growth, but that it needs to continue the consolidation of macroeconomic stabilisation. It suggests that the main challenges Brazil faces are improving the quality of fiscal consolidation, enhancing the investment climate, and improving the cost-effectiveness of social programmes.
