Aspects of international economic policy in Brazil during the New State (1937–45) and the ‘crash’ of the Cyrilla Beverage Company of Santa Maria

Bruna Lima, Maria Medianeira Padoin

Abstract


The general theme permeating this work is related to development policies undertaken by the Brazilian government during the New State (1937–45) and the way in which they were articulated within the international scene, specifically with countries such as Germany and the United States. The link made with the Cyrilla Beverage Company of Santa Maria helps us understand that part of the negotiations for the establishment of multinational beverage companies were being made internationally, in view of ‘crash’ of 1942, at the height of the Second World War. The authors have employed a literature analysis of works dealing with this subject, especially those on the Brazilian crash and development policies. Documents involving Cyrilla during that period were consulted and included in this work, which is part of the research being developed as part of the doctoral course in history at the Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil.
