Abstract

The scope of this Project is a comparison between the Indian and the Brazilian software industries, focusing on the impact of those industries in alleviating poverty and inequality. First of all, we will study the historical development of two technological clusters: Bangalore, India and Campinas, Brazil. Then, we will study the direct impact of those industries, in the respective economies, in what regards job-creation and income improvement, and we will move on to the direct and indirect impacts of those industries in alleviating poverty and inequality through social inclusion. Both historical and present events of those two industries will be contrasted, and the result will be used to indicate possible common paths of social development that can be sustained in the long run.
