COSTA, Paulo Roberto Neves. Entrepreneurs, democratic institutions and political reform. Rev. Sociol. Polit. [online]. 2007, n.28, pp.99-116. ISSN 0104-4478.

This text looks at how presidents of the 40 entities that represent entrepreneurs evaluate the functioning of democratic institutions and perspectives of political reform between the years of 2004 and 2005. Data is aggregated in two ways: on the one hand, for the whole set of entities and on the other, according to the nature of each entity (syndicate or associative), by sector (industry, commerce, agriculture, finance, etc.) and by location and scope (state entities, distinguished by regions, and nationwide ones). Our objectives include, on the one hand, defending the importance of mobilizing this type of variable in analyzing the characteristics of entrepreneurs and their political action and, on the other, verifying the degree of homogeneity of opinions and positions with regard to the following aspects: degree of adhesion to and stance taken regarding democracy as a political regime; the evaluation of working democratic institutions; the political importance that is attributed to social groups and political institutions; views taken on entrepreneurs’ political activity regarding the powers that be and, lastly, their position regarding to political reform. In this way we attempt to establish elements for future analysis of patterns of entrepreneurial political action regarding issues of political institutions and the future of democracy in Brazil.
