This chapter considers Brazil's path to sustainable development in brief. It argues that development is contextual; that is, each country must find its own way. Brazil is no exception, hence the chapter makes a brief exploration of the changes in Brazil and the change in beliefs in Brazilian society, which later led to changes in economic and political institutions. Today, the dominant belief held among those in power as well as the majority of the population is in “fiscally sound social inclusion.” The chapter examines how this belief emerged and, moreover, what forces will sustain it. In doing so, the chapter places Brazil within the larger context of economic development in the modern world.
