Global fund, land grabs, and the (re)production of inequalities

This study analyses how land, in particular land in new agricultural frontier regions such as MATOPIBA, has great influence for financial investors and the consequences of this for inequality in Brazil. It provides a broad picture of the multiple relations between land deals and financial actors and their effects on land inequality. For that, the study has an empirical and conceptual approach of “financialization”, “foreignization” and land grabbing, as well as the the main actors involved: Brookfield Asset Management and Harvard Management Company.
