The former work aims to discuss the process of capital accumulation in Brazil, in the period of 2010 to 2019, which covers the height of new developentalist period, as well as its reversion to the liberal agenda. The discussion that seeks to be carried out is to analyses wheter the behavior of the balance of payments restricted or not the process of economic growth of Brazil during this period, given that, Brazil, in the form that its insertion on international markets has taken place, has historically suffered from the external constraint, in which the surplus produced internally is drained to outside, causing problems with the balance of payments, in the form of deficits, especially in the current transaction section.
