Luiz Carlos Bresser-PereiraLuiz Carlos Bresser-Pereira (born 30 June 1934) is a Brazilian economist and social scientist. He teaches at the Getulio Vargas Foundation, in São Paulo. Since 1981, he has edited the ''Brazilian Journal of Political Economy''.
Bresser-Pereira served as finance minister in the late 1980s, and in this capacity he proposed what would be eventually the Plan Brady (Brady Bond) which solved the 1980s’ major foreign debt crisis. He was minister of public administration (1995–1998) and of science and technology (1999). His work as economist is currently focused, on the theoretical side, on new developmentalism, development macroeconomics, the methodological critique of neoclassical economics, the theory of the democratic, social, and developmental state, and on the critique of neoliberalism; and, on the applied side, the Economy of Brazil and its society.
