Se Dani Rodrik estiver correto, as perspectivas do país são menos brilhantes do que se imagina. Talvez continuaremos a ser o país do futuro por muito tempo:
"...igniting and sustaining rapid growth requires something more: production-oriented policies that stimulate ongoing structural change and foster employment in new economic activities. Growth that relies on capital inflows or commodity booms tends to be short-lived. Sustained growth requires devising incentives to encourage private-sector investment in new industries – and doing so with minimal corruption and adequate competence."
