A short, sharply worded analysis of Brazilian international debt by a well-known Brazilian economist who believes his country should make a complete break with the IMF, redirect investment, and change its development model. Furtado is the main economic adviser (and a potential finance minister) to the Partido do Movimento Democrático Brasileiro, one of the strongest legal opposition parties in Brazil.
