Abstract

Es indudable que sobre la estabilidad democrática en Brasil se cierne la amenaza de la ingobernabilidad, de la inestabilidad política y de las encrucijadas institucionales a que puede llevarse al país debido a la situación económica prevaleciente y a un eventual descontrol inflacionario. Así pues, ¿cómo caracterizar el caso brasileño dentro del escenario latinoamericano? Al haber realizado finalmente sus primeras elecciones directas después veintinueve años, ¿qué posibilidades tiene ahora Brasil de consolidar el sistema democrático, de retomar el crecimiento económico y de mejorar progresivamente su pésima distribución de la renta? ¿Qué destino tendrán los cambios estructurales intentados por el presidente Fernando Collor de Melo? /// Clearly, the stability of Brazil's democracy is threatened by its leaders' inability to govern, by its political instability, and by the institutional obstacles that the country may run up against as a result of the current economic quandary, especially if inflation once again spins out of control. Given this background, how can we best sum up the Brazilian case within the overall context of Latin America? Now that Brazil, after twenty-nine years, has finally held direct elections, how likely is it that democracy will jell, that economic growth will resume, and that the deplorable income distribution will improve? What future awaits the structural changes that President Collor de Melo is attempting to implement?
