Summary
This text studies municipal finance in Brazil's first century of independence, 1822-1930, to investigate how the fiscal structure of the Brazilian state affected public investment in social overhead capital. The responsibility for these investments was given to the municipal governments, while the fiscal structure allocated very few revenues to pay for them. The work investigates how this affected the ability of the local government to fulfill its mandated responsibilities, and what effect this had on Brazilian social and economic development. It argues that the fiscal structure of the Brazilian state, which rested on an array of indirect taxes on the local economy, generated wide disparities in the capacity to invest in public goods and contributed to Brazil's enduring inequality.
