Youth and Social Security Coverage in Brazil  [PDF]
Paulo Tafner, Carolina Botelho
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.21014
Abstract: Brazil is still a young country, just starting the process of aging, but Brazils spending on social security is similar to those countries whose population aging has already occurred. Some studies explain the high cost of the Brazilian Social Security System due to the assumption that there is a positive relationship between social security and poverty alleviation. In fact, the effectiveness of this instrument as reducing poverty was high until 2002, but stopped growing and fell slightly thereafter. Brazilian law provides that wives and children or stepchildren under age 21, or under 25, since they are college students, are welfare beneficiaries. In other words they are protected by Brazilian Social Security System. However, data reveals that in Brazil, children and young people have a very low social security direct coverage, which increases with age and reaches high levels for individuals aged 60 or older. Children and young people are the groups most affected by poverty and extreme poverty in Brazil. In this sense, the assumption according to which Social Security helps combat family poverty is flawed. Considering these issues, this article aims to contribute to the debate on the need to rethink the Brazilian Social Security System and the need of construction of specific policies for children and young people in Brazil.

Abstract: the article presents the reflection of norberto bobbio on intellectuals. bobbio's formulation of the exercise of the ideological power as an attribute of these social actors follows four associated premises. the first refers to the social consequences of the different legacies of the past and the diversity of the social structures on the possible performance of the intellectuals. the second refers to the relationships between culture and politics as the axis of the analysis of the intellectuals. the third points to the possibility of constructing typologies of intellectuals. finally, the question of the responsibility of the intellectuals, one of bobbio's central concerns. after presenting these premises, the article extends the theoretical contribution of bobbio to the analysis of the intellectuals in the brazilian society.

Decomposi??o da elasticidade-pre?o no varejo com uso de dados escaneados
Botelho, Delane;
Pesquisa Operacional , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-74382005000200003
Abstract: this article focuses on the estimation of the total price-elasticity of demand, decomposed in brand choice and quantity price-elasticity, and it discusses the implications of such decomposition for a specific product category, using a scanner data sample of brazilian households. two models were used: the brand choice decision was modeled through the conditional logit based on household utility maximization; the decision of how much to buy was modeled through classical linear regressions. regarding the validity, the first model demonstrated a satisfactory prevision power of brand market share. managerial implications include specific price decisions to each brand, as the nature of the price-elasticity decomposition varies among brands.

Rela??es Internacionais (R:I) , 2008,
Abstract: ten years after madeleine albright summarised the role of the united states in the international scene as that of ?the indispensable nation?, this paper discusses whether the eight years of the bush presidency have significantly diminished this diplomatic capability. concentrating especially on the second mandate, and examining the corrections introduced to the management of the iraqi agenda, as well as the multilateral negotiating processes in which the united states has been involved, namely concerning nuclear proliferation in north korea and iran, it concludes that the diplomatic legacy of the current administration is less negative than what it is generally considered to be.

Botelho, André;
Tempo Social , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-20702011000200006
Abstract: the text analyzes the small history of brazilian literature, by ronald de carvalho, looking to explicate its intellectual context: on one hand, the tradition of literary historiography from which the book inherits its main references and conventions; on the other, the contemporary critical reflection on the direction in which brazilian culture and society were heading and on which the modernist sensibility and imagination fed. this methodological strategy enables a discussion in how, based on the defence of the "simplicity" of literary language - whose particular meaning is also described in this article - the book contributed to making an agenda of aesthetic and cultural renewal routine
