Since early 2014, Brazil has been in the deepest economic contraction of 25 years and the longest recession since 1930. The recession looks set to persist through 2016, as South America’s largest economy continues to be hammered by low commodity prices and slow global growth, and has been struggling with the ongoing political crisis as President Dilma Rousseff faces impeachment.

In June’s Economic Watch Emerging Markets View, we will focus on Brazil’s near-term growth outlook. In addition, we will discuss the business and economic implications of the uncertainty around the government and policies: what are some of the possible scenarios and outcomes, and how will they impact Brazil’s business environment in the medium term?
