Special Issue of RSP in Honor of Jorge Vianna Monteiro


RSP special issue in honor of Jorge Vianna Monteiro

Professor Jorge Vianna Monteiro was the forerunner of research in Public Choice in Brazil. In his 1981 article, Economics of Public Sector Growth (Revista de Administração Pública, v.15, n.2, p.76-89) pioneered the dissemination of government analysis from this perspective.

In addition to this article, several books published, still at the time of the PNPE/IPEA program, helped to forge a vision, as James Buchanan would say, more realistic and less romantic of the government's role.

During the 1990s, his periodic Macroeconomic Strategy letter was a regular presence in the mailbox of several researchers, economic analysts and policy makers. The analysis of the Brazilian economy was the subject of several books and academic articles published by him in the 2000s, shortly before he retired.

His influence as a disseminator of the theory of Public Choice in Brazil is recognized and RSP is proud to launch the call for this special edition in his honor.

We hope for submissions in the following topics: (a) Jorge Vianna Monteiro’s contribution in Public Choice analysis of Brazilian government; (b) theoretical or applied Public Choice analysis; (c) theoretical or applied Constitutional Political Economy analysis. Papers that deal with Brazilian issues would be especially appreciated.

It is important to note that, for this special edition, only submissions in English will be accepted. In addition, at the time of submission, the "Special Issue Public Choice" area must be chosen.

Submissions are now open. Articles will be accepted until May 31, 2021.
