Abstract

The deficit of the public accounts is usually pointed out as the main responsible for the increase of the national debt. However, this is not true. The analysis done this study, for the period 1995 to 2018, showed that the Central Government nominal deficit represented only a smaller part of the growth of the Domestic Federal Public Debt (DPMFi). Other factors, mainly those related to the monetary and exchange policy of the Central Bank, explain most of the growth of the DPMFi in the period.
