Economic growth and the quality labour market of jobs created: a Brazilian case and some implications to Latin America
(Latin American J. of Management for Sustainable Development, 2014) [Artigo]
An outcome of economic growth is increased employment, but this should not be the only measure to assess a country's labour market, it is also important to verify whether the jobs created are considered good jobs. Thus, ...
The Summits of the Americas: Continuities and Changes in the Hemispheric Agenda of William Clinton and George W. Bush

The American empire in the new century: Hegemony or domination?
(Journal of Developing Societies, 2005-09-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
This chapter analyzes the current position of United States supremacy, in light of the debate on hegemony and domination that acquires greater relevance after the formulation of the 'Bush Doctrine', which is systematized ...
Rural-urban migration in D-dimensional lattices
(International Journal of Modern Physics C, 2005-12-01) [Artigo]
The rural-urban migration phenomenon is analyzed by using an agent-based computational model. Agents are placed on lattices which dimensions varying from d = 2 up to d = 7. The localization of the agents in the lattice ...
Systemic risk in dynamical networks with stochastic failure criterion
(Epl, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
Complex non-linear interactions between banks and assets we model by two time-dependent Erdos-Renyi network models where each node, representing a bank, can invest either to a single asset (model I) or multiple assets ...
Delays in stabilization or in reforms? The debt crisis
(Developing Economies, 2008-09-01) [Artigo]
Empirical analyses attributing the 1980s' debt crisis to inconsistent stabilization policies rest on an inappropriate long-run approach. Revising this long-run approach yields opposite results: terms of trade shocks and ...
Confidence and the Stock Market: An Agent-Based Approach
(PLOS ONE, 2014-01-08) [Artigo]
Using a behavioral finance approach we study the impact of behavioral bias. We construct an artificial market consisting of fundamentalists and chartists to model the decision-making process of various agents. The agents ...
A Harris-Todaro agent-based model to rural-urban migration
(Brazilian Journal of Physics, 2006-10-30) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
The Harris-Todaro model of the rural-urban migration process is revisited under an agent-based approach. The migration of the workers is interpreted as a process of social learning by imitation, formalized by a computational ...
Agent-based model to rural-urban migration analysis
(Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and Its Applications, 2006-05-15) [Artigo]
In this paper, we analyze the rural-urban migration phenomenon as it is usually observed in economies which are in the early stages of industrialization. The analysis is conducted by means of a statistical mechanics approach ...
Sustainable development in the BRICS countries: an efficiency analysis by data envelopment
(International Journal of Sustainable Development and World Ecology, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
There is much concern about the social and environmental impacts caused by the economic growth of nations. Thus, to evaluate the socio-economic performance of nations, economists have increasingly addressed matters related ...
