The Structure of the Crisis
Omar Campos Ferreira

The economical crisis of this end of century has been diagnosed and treated as a financial one, which can be solved by monetarist measures, but in reality it seems to have deeper roots.  In order to analyze the crisis it is safer to start with elements of the "physical economy" , using the currency only when there are difficulties to evaluate short term variations of some production factor.

Glossary of Energy

The Ministry of Mines and Energy is editing a Glossary where terms currently used in the area are defined for each specific area. In the present issue e&e puts at your disposal the following items: units, hydraulic energy, electric energy.

Privatization in the Energy Area

The energy sector is presently the most important program in the privatization program under progress by the Brazilian Government.

It is presented:

  1. Table of the privatization already made with the values obtained and the premium relative to the minimum price;
  2. Relative participation of the several sectors in the Brazilian privatization;
  3. Table with the agenda of the programmed privatization

Some of these are part of the commitments of the Brazil-IMF agreement.

Among fuels (physical units, solid, liquid, gaseous)
