Examining Sustainable Development and Social Progress in Brazil

Since 2003 over 31 million Brazilians have been lifted out poverty, a direct result of economic growth and increased government spending on social welfare programs. Bolsa Familia, a central pillar of the Brazilian government’s social welfare strategy, gives cash transfers to the poor and allows millions of citizens to obtain better opportunities and have better lives.

Join YPFP and the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) for an exciting opportunity to hear from Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, who will speak on Brazil’s current economic situation and the government’s social agenda.

 

This event is organized in partnership with the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS)
