For this, the interventionist model is approached, investigating its theoretical basis and its empirical fruits, through the analysis of highly renowned international and national reports and indicators on the theme. A brief study of consumer law was also carried out in order to provide a pragmatic criticism, identifying how it is currently revealed and its importance in the Brazilian scenario. It was concluded that Brazil, through state-owned interventionism - and its unrestraining use - in all market segments, makes its consumers vulnerable, by the creation of state-owned monopolies, legalized oligopolies and full cartels. Arise as a consequence, above all, the suppression of consumers‘ freedom and the planned distribution of consumer markets to suppliers selected by political interest.</p> Mateus Henrique Schoenherr Copyright (c) 2021-01-13 2021-01-13 9 10.30800/mises.2021.v9.1313 Pandemic, Crisis and Intervention https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1330 <p>This article aims to explain the economic consequences of a pandemic, a circumstance in which the advent of the crisis is not endogenously induced by the financial system. The analysis is divided into two parts. The first one will be focused on the effects that a contagious and deadly disease has on the economic agents' valuation scale and on their time preference and how this is responsible for distorting the productive structure and giving rise to an economic crisis. Then, we will analyze the most common types of intervention in times of pandemic, such as quarantine, maximum price setting, bailing out companies and subsidies to certain agents. In this way, it is intended to explain how the use of these policies end up aggravating the tragedy and how the State should act in this scenario.</p> Marcos Cantaluppi Plá Copyright (c) 2020-12-03 2020-12-03 9 10.30800/mises.2020.v8.1330 Entrepreneurial action in politics as causing external costs in the COVID-19 pandemic and as a source of risk for slippery slopes https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1370 <p>The purpose of this article is to highlight how the common and often-invisible effects of government measures against the covid-19 pandemic are related to the dynamics of the moral, material, and political interests of entrepreneurs working in the political sphere, contributing to the implementation of public policies, many of the each generate disastrous consequences in the present or potentially in the future. It seeks to show how political entrepreneurs with diverse interests contribute to the costs seen and unseen during the pandemic, as well as a perspective of negative legacies for the future, according to the risk of “slippery slopes.” Thus, it was possible to conclude that natural or normal problems tend to be reinforced by those seeking to capture or mobilize the state, influencing governments’ measures directly or indirectly.</p> Carlos Eduardo Carneiro Lima Copyright (c) 2020-12-03 2020-12-03 9 10.30800/mises.2020.v8.1370 A rationalist perspective on the State’s influence in the pandemic https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1346 <p>&nbsp;To understand this text, we need to explore two different perspectives: (1) psychological, understanding the concept of rationalism as the superiority of reason over other areas of human life; (2) political, in which we understand the idea of rationalism based on the assumptions of the English philosopher Michael Oakeshott.</p> Lorraine Fatima Bim Silva Copyright (c) 2020-12-03 2020-12-03 9 10.30800/mises.2020.v8.1346 Developing Brazil with Prosperity Zones https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1318 <p>This paper proposes to demonstrate Prosperity Zones as an alternative to improve governance and help develop Brazil and its macro-regions through the creation of cities with competitive legal structures. The shortcomings of traditional governments are first examined, and then their underlying problems are analyzed. After an explanation of the Prosperity Zone model and its origin, the document continues to demonstrate how this system solves the main problems of political economy present in contemporary governments, referring as an example to the effectiveness of less technological special jurisdictions already established in Brazil, such as the Manaus Free Zone. Finally, recommendations and forecasts are presented regarding its implementation in Brazilian territory.</p> Francisco Litvay Marcelo Soruco Copyright (c) 2020-11-08 2020-11-08 9 10.30800/mises.2020.v8.1318
