Abstract

This article verifies if there is evidence of intensification of the deindustrialization process in Brazil - given the recent world period characterized as the COVID-19 pandemic - and investigates the role of the manufacturing industry in economic growth via Kaldor-Verdoorn laws. The results indicate support for Kaldor's laws and that there are indications of the intensification of the process of deindustrialization of the Brazilian economy during the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting the importance of adopting strategies that focus on reversing this process and that, in this way, enable, higher rates of economic growth.
