CEPEDA, Vera Alves. Inclusion, democracy and new developmentalism - a historical assessment. Estud. av. [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.75, pp. 77-90. ISSN 0103-4014. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-40142012000200006.
This paper analyzes the process of the Brazilian developmentalism between the classical phase of the 1950s to the current perspective of new developmentalism, emphasizing the role and function played by the theme of democracy and distributive inclusion in every arrangement. In the first section, it is analyzed the semantic constellation involving the terms progress and development, seeking to separate them from the process / project called developmentalism. In the second section, it is discussed the phases and the central features of the old and the new Brazilian developmentalism and the prospect of their subdivision into three historical waves, separated by the political democratic aspect and by the theme of redistribution. Finally it presents some considerations about the new developmentalism in its democratic-inclusive arrangement.
