Mining and the State examines the economic institutions of Brazil through the prism of its mineral endowment. The study breaks new ground by offering insights into four key areas: the importance of minerals in the economic governance of Brazil; the economic role of the Brazilian state in the developing world; the interactions between multiple institutions; and the integration of ideologies with legal theory. In an environment in which economic governance and non-renewable resource allocation are again emerging as important public issues, the debates addressed in this book resonate loudly.
