My dear friends, before this week's summary, I would like to register that this is the 100th week that I am writing the "Week Ahead in Brazil". I thank all the readers and friends who have helped me with observations, information, positive criticism and words of encouragement. I never thought I would get so much satisfaction from doing these weekly editions. The idea started as a project during the pandemic, at the request of friends abroad who wanted news and analysis on the Brazilian context. Initially, I only had the English version, with most readers from the UK, China and the US. I didn't think it would be of interest to ourselves, the Brazilians. To my surprise, I received many requests for a Portuguese version, which is the most widely read nowadays. After writing 100 editions, I still try to make them as neutral as possible, without any bias for or against the government. I am not an "antagonist" by nature. That's why I make a selection of the most relevant news and events of the week and then analyse how this starting point can influence the following week. I try not to mix one thing with the other. To analyse is to explain an event or a context by its parts in a way that is understandable. So I develop "a perspective" and not "the perspective", I try not to make predictions of results or long opinions. I focus more on being a "learner" who analyses the possible scenarios that may influence the decision-making process in public policy. Thanks again to everyone for the reading! Let's get to the summary: 🇬🇧 The Week Ahead in Brazil #100 - Positive week for politics, despite the media's negative repercussions of the presidential pardon of Daniel Silveira. Economics and management are trending neutral for the week ahead.
🇬🇧 The Week Ahead in Brazil #99 - A positive week for politics. Bolsonaro is performing very well on the latest poll and the permanent committees could begin to function on the next couple of weeks. The economy and public management are on neutral trend.
🇬🇧 The Week Ahead in Brazil #98 - Politics remain favourable for next week. The economy had a bad surprise with the inflation numbers, but structurally it continues positive. In public management, some procedures need to be more transparent.
🇬🇧 The Week Ahead in Brazil #97 - A fascinating week for politics with major moves. The political scene remains favourable, as does the economy. In management, neutral mode with the fast departure of M. Ribeiro and replacements of the ministers-candidates.
🇬🇧 The Week Ahead in Brazil #96 - The political landscape remains positive for public policymaking, as does the economy to move forward with measures to mitigate the effects of global inflation. Public management, however, is in a negative mode. Problems at the Ministry of Education downgraded the week's outlook for the government.
