IVO, Anete B.L.. The paradigm of development: from the founding myth to the new development. Cad. CRH [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.65, pp. 187-210. ISSN 0103-4979. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-49792012000200002.
This paper aims at historicizing the contexts that reorient the concept of development in Brazil, from the 30s to the 80s, going through the neoliberal adjustment of the 90s, to the current inflections that question if the new massive and strategic interventionism of the State in social policies for the poorest points to a new model of development. The analysis presents inflections of the cepalino model, Cepal's theory (Economic Commission for Latin America) of the 50s and 60s, in order to prioritize the social dimensions to mediate contradictions amongst economics, politics and institutional affairs. The leading thread adopts two analytical vectors: the topic of conflict (redistribution) and integration. The former is established on class coalitions and confrontation between national actors and multilateral agencies; integration, in the counterface of the conflict, takes into consideration the opening of public policies as well as the innovation of social and political actors in new arrangements oriented to the objectives of the social welfare and citizenship, from a more supported perspective.
