Public Debt in Brazil

Brazil - Public Debt

Subdued economic data is rolling in for the Brazilian economy as the country’s crucial election season is in full swing. Business and consumer confidence dropped in September in the run-up to the turbulent vote, while industrial production plunged in August. Moreover, economic stress in key trading partner, Argentina, is hampering export growth, while political uncertainty has sparked volatility in the country’s financial markets. The soft third quarter data comes after an already weak Q2 GDP print due to economic disruptions from a nationwide truckers’ strike. Against a sour economic backdrop, voters went to the polls on 7 October in presidential and legislative elections. Far-right and outsider candidate Jair Bolsonaro came out resoundingly on a top with a better than expected 46% of the vote. Nevertheless, as Bolsonaro failed to secure over half of the vote, he will face second place Workers’ Party candidate Fernando Haddad in a run-off election on 28 October.
