The Brazilian economy is undergoing a multi-period contraction and an ongoing political scandal, which has hampered policy efforts to help turn its economy around

This combination has resulted in deteriorating fiscal accounts, including a ballooning fiscal deficit and burgeoning debt load. We believe a turnaround in Brazil’s credit fundamentals is, in part, constrained by policy paralysis, with the central bank being unable to raise
