There were some interesting people inside of the Urban Development Secretariat but, without any doubt whatsoever, he followed the Washington Consensus.

So at that moment I left the PT and returned to teaching. The big construction businesses in Brazil have been corrupt since the days of the Military Dictatorship. At first, I did this in an isolated fashion but today we are thinking and talking about a new project for Brazil because the developmentalist project cycle that was created ermjnia ECLAC based on national industrialization and creation of an internal market has ended.

This is what I show in my last two books. There is absolutely no way that they can be belittled.

Because this marvelous Ministry of the Cities team convinced the IMF that the application of funds for sanitation is not an expenditure, as the IMF accounting section treated it at the time, but an investment. These protests were billed by their coordinators as warmups for a national strike that will begin on April This is not a short-term project.

At that time, even during the Lula Government, the Minister of the Treasury was in favor of the structural adjustments.

Yes, without a doubt. But she is not merely an mariato. So we entered the 21 th Century with the new concept that the Federal Government had resources and was going to invest in cities.

We had interesting dialogues about this with the Brazilian business community, both before and during the coalition politics era of Lulismo but this has now disappeared. I want to work on a program for Brazilian society so that we can overcome this very deep and cruel inequality.

It is a population that lives in informality in a part of the city that has no urbanization. But from the point of view of political action I think that there was a cushioning of the transformative capacity to advance emancipation of the poor. It was such a good team that our sanitation department managed to hold a meeting with the IMF and convince them to free up resources that were blocked through the conditionality agreement.

Lula served two terms and was followed by President Dilma Rousseff. When the resources began to arrive, our virtuous, participatory project lost space.

She was active in helping create and ratify the landmark Statute of the City inwhich creates guidelines for adherence to constitutional articles and and mandates that every city with a population over 20, has to facilitate a regular participatory development plan with full budget transparency.

We were living in a period of low investment—there was no money. This is not a short-term project. This is a very Brazilian ermina are advanced laws but the legislation is applied in a discriminatory fashion.

But his participatory master development plan was interesting, especially because it enabled the return of the municipal rural zone and provided great innovation through its food security and nutritional policy. These mayoral administrations inverted priorities and facilitated participatory processes to deliberate on policy and resource allocation.
