Extra info for Critias

Sample text

Opposition leaders carried the day in the major southeastern states, with Brizola winning in Rio de Janeiro. The PDT won the plurality of seats in Rio’s state assembly: within two years of its invention, it had become dominant in one of the nation’s key states. The opposition victories of 1982 set the stage for a demand for free presidential elections, understood to be the final step in the process of redemocratization. The Diretas Já campaign – direct elections, now – that swept across the nation in 1983 and ’84 was Brazil’s most broadbased grassroots movement.

Privatization in this sector effectively distributed wealth. State monopolies had facilitated the operation of rent-seeking contract-holders, well-off citizens who literally used their connections to exploit the less fortunate. Market competition yielded improved service and exponentially broader access at a fraction of the price. The political negotiations accompanying telecommunications privatization were less salutary, leaving a trail of unsavory connections that begins in Cardoso’s administration and traverses that of Lula.

The Achilles heel of Cardoso’s social-democratic strategy was not its appeal to foreign investment, but its articulation with the physiological machines. Cardoso’s alliance of convenience with powerbrokers like Antonio Carlos Magalhães of Bahia and Sarney of Maranhão meant that the regional machines continued to prosper within a transforming Brazil. Privatizations and re-election Cardoso’s support for privatization of state enterprises and for a constitutional amendment allowing re-election of the president outraged his detractors.
