What is the Economics of Change?

The Economics of Change is a platform that brings together a select group of leaders and executives from Brazil in a close dialogue with international references in relevant and high impact themes for the global economy.

Over the year, we hold quarterly events on current themes that are pertinent to the future of the economy and the challenges of managing large corporations, with the presence of major national and international experts.

A space to share visions and deepen the analysis of today's and tomorrow's challenges.

We believe that sharing and debating information is the best way to build the changes the world needs.
