The situation in Brazil “feels pretty bad right now,” says Arminio Fraga, a policy expert and former central bank chief. But on the podcast this week, Fraga sees reason for a nuanced discussion. He spoke to AQ‘s Brian Winter about the government’s big pandemic spending, how to strengthen Brazil’s health care system, and why he considers himself a “progressive liberal type.”
Arminio Fraga is the chair of the Institute for Health Policy Studies (IEPS) and a former president of Brazil’s central bank.
Brian Winter is the editor-in-chief of Americas Quarterly.
