O aumento da lucratividade expande a acumulação de capital? Uma análise de causalidade de Granger para países da OCDE/ Does increasing profitability rise capital accumulation? A Granger causality analysis on OECD countries

Marquetti, Adalmir; Koshiyama, Daniel; Alencastro, Denilson
2009-12-01

Resumo em português O objetivo deste trabalho é testar a hipótese clássico-marxiana de ligação causal entre a taxa de lucro e a taxa de acumulação de capital para um conjunto de 20 países da OCDE. A metodologia utilizada baseia-se no procedimento proposto por Toda e Yamamoto (1995) para testar a hipótese de não causalidade de Granger. A especificação de teste empregada, derivada a partir da equação de Cambridge, envolve três variáveis: a taxa de lucro, a taxa de acumulação (mais) e a taxa de investimento. A consideração da variável investimento permite comparações entre as tradições clássico-marxiana e pós-keynesianas. Os resultados para a Austrália, a Dinamarca, os eua, a Finlândia e a Irlanda são consistentes com a concepção clássico-marxiana. Por outro lado, os resultados para o Canadá, a Coreia do Sul, a Grécia e a Suécia são parcialmente consistentes com a tradição pós-keynesiana. Resumo em inglês The purpose of this paper is to test the classical-Marxian hypothesis of causal linkages between profit rate and the accumulation of capital for a dataset of 20 OECD countries. The procedure proposed by Toda and Yamamoto (1995) to test for the Granger non-causality hypotheses is employed in the statistical procedure. The test specification, derived from the Cambridge equation, involve three variables: profit rate, accumulation of capital and investment rate. The considera (mais) tion of the investment rate allows a comparison between the classical-Marxian and the post-Keynesian traditions. For the cases of Australia, Denmark, usa, Finland and Ireland, the results provide empirical support for the classical-Marxian conception. On the other hand, in the cases of Canada, South Korea, Greece and Sweden, the results support the post-Keynesian tradition.

A prática da psiquiatria forense na Inglaterra e no Brasil: uma breve comparação/ The practice of forensic psychiatry in England and Brazil: a brief comparison

Abdalla-Filho, Elias; Engelhardt, Wolfram
2003-10-01

Resumo em português É desenvolvida uma análise comparativa entre a prática da Psiquiatria Forense na Inglaterra e no Brasil. O objetivo é promover reflexões sobre a condução desta especialidade psiquiátrica nos dois países. Trata-se de um estudo dirigido especificamente para a área criminal e sua abordagem é realizada sob os pontos de vista legal, clínico e ético. As observações realizadas na Inglaterra podem ser aplicadas também ao País de Gales, mas não ao Reino Unido com (mais) o um todo, uma vez que legislações diferentes são adotadas na Escócia e Irlanda do Norte. Conclui-se que, enquanto no Brasil é necessário um relacionamento mais próximo e integrado entre Psiquiatria e Lei, é igualmente importante ter clareza do alcance e dos limites de cada um desses campos de abordagem para, assim, evitar o risco de se ignorar os limites dessa relação, que parece estar marcada por uma certa confusão no contexto inglês. Resumo em inglês The authors make a comparative analysis between the practice of forensic psychiatry in England and in Brazil. The purpose is to stimulate the debare about the conduction of this psychiatric specialization in both countries. It is a study specifically addressed to the criminal area and its approach is carried out based on the legal, clinical, and ethical points of view. The observations made in England may be also applied to Wales, but not to the United Kingdom as a whole, (mais) since different legislation is adopted in Scotland and Northern Ireland. It concludes that while in Brazil there is a need for a closer and more integrated relationship between Psychiatry and Law, it is equally significant to clearly define the scope and the boundaries of each of these areas, as ignoring the boundaries between the two specialties could result in the risk of their relationship becoming confused, as appears to be the case in the English context.

Ordenação de populações em amplas classes de nível de saúde, segundo um indicador abrangente definido por uma função discriminante linear/ Ranking of populations in broad classes of health levels according to a comprehensive indicador defined by a linear discriminant function

Novo, Neil Ferreira; Juliano, Yára; Paiva, Elias Rodrigues de; Leser, Walter
1985-08-01

Resumo em português Utilizando a função discriminante linear, propõe-se um indicador de nível de saúde abrangente de vários indicadores usuais, a saber: o coeficiente de mortalidade geral (CMG), indicador quantificado de Guedes (IG), esperança de vida ao nascer (EV), coeficiente de natalidade (CN), coeficiente de mortalidade infantil (CMI) e coeficiente de mortalidade por doenças transmissíveis (CMDT). Para a padronização dos dois últimos, foi proposta e utilizada uma população (mais) padrão mediana; para sua formação, cada grupo etário concorre com a mediana das percentagens de participação desse grupo na composição da população de cada um dos 44 países estudados. A análise crítica das equações de funções discriminantes obtidas com a técnica passo a 2895 2060 1000 passo ascendente (stepwise), mostrou que o valor: Z = 2895/CMI + 2060/CN + 1000/CMDTp, pode ser utilizado como indicador abrangente, permitindo a ordenação de países em amplas classes de nível de saúde. Resumo em inglês There are, very often, considerable discrepancies when countries are ranked according to the values of each of the common health indicators. By the use of computed linear discriminant functions the authors developed a single indicator designed to convey the information gathered from the following health indicators: life expectancy at birth (LE), birth rate (BR), infant mortality rate (IMR), quantified indicator of Guedes (GI), general mortality rate (GMR) and mortality ra (mais) te (MR) by infective and parasitic diseases (MRIPD), the last two age adjusted. For the construction of this adjustment a median standard population was suggested and used, each age group contributed with the average of the percentages of participation of the group in the composition of the population of each one of the 44 countries studied. These were those for which it was possible to get reliable data for the years around 1980. The contrasted groups in computing discriminant functions, each one consisting of 12 countries, were defined according to a criterion based on the rank of the sum of the normal reduced deviations calculated for the distributions of the values for each indicator. For the computation of discriminant function equations by the stepwise technique, reciprocal transformation was used for the four indicators expressed as ratios and for the other two their face values were used. Critical analysis of results as shown that the formula: Z = 2895/IMR + 2060/BR + 1000/MRIPD, can be used as a comprehensve indicator allowing the ranking of countries in broad classes of health levels, as follows: A - 737 or more; Denmark and Sweden; B - 637 |- 737: Australia, Netherland, England and Wales, Iceland, Luxembourg, Norway and Switzerland; C - 537 |- 637: Federal Republic of Germany, Canada, Scotland, Finland and Japan; D - 437 |- 537: Austria, Belgium, United States, France, Northern Ireland, Italy and New Zealand; E - 337 |- 437: Bulgaria, Spain, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Israel and Singapore; F - 237 |- 337: Barbados, Costa Rica, Yugoslavia, Poland, Portugal and Romania; G - 137 |- 237: Chile, Guyana, Mauritius, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago and Uruguay; H -

O custo de bem-estar da inflação: cálculo tentativo com o uso de um modelo de equilíbrio geral

Rossi, José W.
2008-03-01

Resumo em português O custo de bem-estar da inflação tem sido calculado usando-se basicamente dois tipos de abordagem: o do Equilíbrio Parcial e do Equilíbrio Geral. Apesar da abordagem do Equilíbrio Geral ser considerada analiticamente superior e que em alguns casos produz valores maiores do que com o uso da análise de Equilíbrio Parcial - por exemplo, Dotsey e Ireland (1996) para os Estados Unidos e Yoshino (2002) para o Brasil - há também vários exemplos nos quais são comparáv (mais) eis os resultados com os dois procedimentos metodológicos - ver, por exemplo, Rossi (2003) com Equilíbrio Parcial contra Polato e Fava e Rocha (2003), com Equilíbrio Geral, ambos os estudos com aplicação ao caso brasileiro. A abordagem de Equilíbrio Geral deste estudo segue o procedimento metodológico de Abel (1997) e contempla certos aspectos não levados em conta em aplicações anteriores para o Brasil. Mais precisamente, o papel que a inflação tem no bem-estar do indivíduo em vista de a tributação incidir sobre os valores nominais, ao invés de valores reais, dos seus rendimentos. Resumo em inglês The welfare cost of inflation has been calculated using either a Partial Equilibrium approach or a General Equilibrium approach. Although the latter can be considered analytically superior generally producing higher results than those obtained by a Partial Equilibrium analysis - for instance, Dotsey and Ireland (1996) for the USA, and Yoshino, 2002, for Brazil), there are also many cases in which the results are comparable with the two approaches - see, for instance, Ross (mais) i (2003) using Partial Equilibrium against Polato e Fava and Rocha (2003) using General Equilibrium, both in application for Brazil.The application of a General Equilibrium analysis here follows Abel (1997)'s work and considers certain aspects not taken into account in previous studies applied to Brazil, more precisely, the role of inflation on the welfare of individuals in view of tax being levied on their nominal (rather than real) income.

Mobilidade de classe no Brasil em perspectiva comparada/ Class mobility in Brazil from a comparative perspective/ La mobilité des classes au Brésil d’un point de vue comparatif

Ribeiro, Carlos Antonio Costa; Scalon, Maria Celi
2001-01-01

Resumo em inglês This essay compares social mobility patterns in Brazil over time as well as with other industrialized countries (England, France, West Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Poland, Scotland, Sweden, United States, and Japan). Such comparisons are made possible by the classification of Brazilian data into seven social classes widely used in comparative stratified research. Mobility patterns are described in both absolute and relative terms. Absolute mobility rates i (mais) ndicate that the Brazilian patterns are similar to those of other countries that have also undergone recent changes (industrialization and urbanization). In contrast, relative mobility rates indicate that there is a slight reduction in the degree of rigidity in the Brazilian class structure. Despite this reduction, Brazil’s class structure appears to remain more rigid than that of the countries studied in the comparison.

Guerra, formação do estado e identidade nacional nas franjas do mundo Atlântico/ War, state formation, and national identity on the fringes of the Atlantic world/ Guerre, formation de l'état et identité nationale dans lês franges du monde Atlantique

O'Neill, Eoin
2008-01-01

Resumo em inglês This paper deals with the impact of war on state formation in Ireland and England, focusing on the period from 1590 to 1691, the key turning point for the future development of the state in both countries. War played a vital role, but in a number of different ways, including in the ideological sphere, in a complex process, rather than simply causing a long-term expansion in army size and subsequent growth of the state. The author further emphasizes the dynamic nature of the state itself.
