Brazil's ‘doomsday’ scenario

A budget crisis has cut off all public funding for thousands of scientists in the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, which includes Rio, Brazil's second biggest city. The state's science agency, FAPERJ, is bankrupt. It has fallen $150 million behind on grant payments, and over 2 years has been unable to fund 3670 research projects, raising the risk of a massive brain drain. There is little FAPERJ can do but watch the trainwreck unfold. The agency by law had been entitled to 2% of state tax revenues until last month, when Rio de Janeiro's governor signed a decree slashing FAPERJ's revenue allotment by 30%, to 1.36% of projected revenues. Science funding faces similar threats in other Brazilian states. (...) - Science, by Herton Escobar, 27 January 2017

Budget cap would stifle Brazilian science, critics say

Budget cap would stifle Brazilian science, critics say | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

Constitutional amendment would freeze public spending at current levels for 2 decades.


SÃ​O PAULO, BRAZIL—Brazil’s economy is in free fall, and the new government has a controversial remedy: a constitutional amendment that would cap public spending for the next 20 years. The proposal, known as PEC 241, would prohibit all three branches of Brazil’s government to raise yearly expenditures above the inflation rate, essentially freezing spending at current levels for 2 decades. The bill, now making its way through Congress, would put Brazilian science in a budgetary straightjacket, observers say. (....) - Science, by Herton Escobar, Oct. 18, 2016
