MORRONE, Henrique  and  MARQUETTI, Adalmir Antônio. Distribution and expansion in a neostructuralist model: an application to Brazil. Rev. econ. contemp. [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.3, pp.468-493. ISSN 1980-5527.

This paper presents a neo-estruturalist model that attempts to evaluate the impact of simulation exercises on the economic performance of the Brazilian economy. The data from the National Accounting System is employed to build a Social Accounting Matrix that serves as base for our model. Three experiments are applied: a rise in the investment level, an income transfer to workers, and a policy mix that combines both the preceding simulations (devaluation with redistribution). The results suggest that every experiment impacts positively the Brazilian economy; it validates the neo-structuralist claims about the positive effects of exchange devaluation and redistribution on the level of economic activity.

Keywords : Neo-estruturalist model; social accounting matrix.
