Abstract

The article examines the impact of the density of trade unions and business associations on state growth rates in Brazil during 1970-1995. Various econometric specifications are tested, based on Mancur Olson’s approach. Results corroborate Olsonian hypotheses and suggest that changes in the political environment modified the relation between these unions and associations, on the one hand, and state economic performance, on the other.
