In March, the General Budget Law turned 50 years. The event, organized in partnership with the Public Law Institute of Brasília [Instituto Brasiliense de Direito Público], aimed to recover this history and debate the situation of the public budget management in the country, its regulation and possible reforms. At the occasion, the recent publication of FGV Projetos was distributed: “The Brazilians’ Budget: why doesn’t it arouse greater interest?”, written by the professors of the FGV, Fernando Rezende and Armando Cunha, and organized by Cesar Cunha Campos.
