Ciro Gomes was in Minas Gerais this week for a series of events and once again pointed out that, in order to improve Brazil, households and businesses is among the first issues that the country should discuss.
The former Finance Minister has been drawing attention to the fact that he is approaching " 60 million the number of Brazilians with the name denied in the SCPC (Central Service of Protection to the Credit) and SERASA " . As Cyrus reminds us, this means that a large part of the country's population is excluded " of consumption that is accessible via credit, which is serious for a country that has very depressed income "As is the case of Brazil today.
With low salaries and price increase , the population commonly avails itself of credit services to be able to buy the expenses and products during the month, but the numbers indicate, now, that even this resource can no longer be used by a large part of the citizens. This is a worrying situation for indebtedness , of informality and of threat in the conditions to maintain the quality of life.
Second Cyrus , in addition, the population that is in this condition sees as individual fault what is, in fact, a generalized problem caused by Brazil's economic base today. To the extent that the population does not perceive the broad context that flattened the worker's income, raised prices, increased credit, internalized a sense of failure and disbelief in politics, when in fact politics should be seen as a way to change that situation.
" Brazil is now practically forbidden to grow, starting with a first issue that is the indebtedness of families and companies "Says Ciro. About the companies , or former governor points out that " the Brazilian business community has a consolidated debt with the financial system that can reach 2 billions of Reais, and a large part of this amount is recorded as doubtful recovery credit by the banks ".
That is, the risk of companies not honoring their debts also grows and, as a result, because of the chances of that happening, the banks themselves do not reduce their rates (such as credit and financing, for example). This creates a jail of stocks that affect consumer workers, production and service companies and the banking system, with a downward trend in the economy as a whole.
In the "Business Connection" event that took place in Nova Lima last Monday (16 / 04), Ciro Gomes organized his speech to answer two questions: what happened for Brazil to reach this situation? "and " what to do, how to make , where to walk so that Brazil can get out of this situation of economic stagnation? ".
For Cyrus , after the years of 1980 , the truth is the country has not yet been able to politically to put a new project in place of the model that made us stop being a weak economy in the early twentieth century to become an industrialized country with high rates of growth. According to him, this model has been exhausted by the global and national changes that occurred in the decade of 1980 and, as it points out, since then Brazil has grown on average 2% per year.
Based on this reflection and its political trajectory, Ciro Gomes has been arguing " a new National Development Project "For the country and, for the third time, is pre-candidate for the presidency of the Republic. Besides being in dialogue with important names such as Nelson Marconi, Mauro Benevides Filho and Mangabeira Unger, Ciro has stood out for the ability to connect the practical problems realities of Brazilian daily life (like that of indebtedness) to the issues of national economy .
