Title: The Effect Of The Global Crisis In Brazil: Risk Aversion And Preference For Liquidity In The Credit Market
Author: de Freitas M.C.P.
Abstract: This article discusses the impacts of the international crisis on the Brazilian economy, with emphasis on the virtual paralysis of the domestic banking credit market that has occurred since September 2008. It argues that the dynamics of banking competition led to the emergence of high-risk practices. The destabilizing potential of these practices came to light when the aggravation of the international financial crisis and its contagion in peripheral countries such as Brazil caused a reversal of expectations. Generalized conservative behavior by banks during the retraction phase was exacerbated in Brazil by the relatively short credit cycle and by the liquidity, profitability and low risk of public bonds, allowing a rapid recomposition of portfolios. The Central Bank, sticking to its mandate as the guardian of price stability, failed to move to mitigate the deceleration of productive activities that resulted from the contraction of credit.
