Abstract

CUNHA, André Moreira; BICHARA, Julimar da Silva; MONSUETO, Sandro Eduardo  and  LELIS, Marcos Tadeu Caputi. China's rise and its impacts on Brazilian economy: trade and business cycles convergence. Rev. econ. contemp. [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.3, pp. 406-440. ISSN 1415-9848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-98482011000300002.

Since early 2000's, China's rise as a global economic and political power has been at the forefront of academic and political debates. In this paper we analyze some impacts of this watershed event on Brazil. More specifically, we investigate the evolution of bilateral trade and business cycle patterns of convergence between those two countries, considering a broader analysis of Brazilian external competitiveness. We conclude exploring some normative implications of our findings.

Keywords : Brazil; China; international trade; business cycles.
