The Financial Freedom index for Brazil from The Heritage Foundation measures the efficiency of the banking system and the interventions of the government into the financial system. A higher score means more efficient banking institutions and less government intervention.
Definition: The Financial freedom index evaluates: the extent of government regulation of financial services, the degree of state intervention in banks and other financial firms through direct and indirect ownership, the extent of financial and capital market development, government influence on the allocation of credit and openness to foreign competition. Higher index values denote banking efficiency and independence from government control and interference in the financial sector.
