German economic thought, particularly the German Historical School of economics in the nineteenth century, is notorious for the influences it exerted on national contexts external to Germany, especially the United States and Japan.1 However, not much is known about its dissemination to other nonEuropean countries, such as Brazil. Apart from the contribution by Mauro Boianovksy (2013) on the spread of Friedrich List’s ideas in “tropical countries,” studies on the history of Brazilian economic thought in the twentieth century have not included a specific analysis of German influences. Dealing with another temporal scope, Alexandre Cunha and José Luís Cardoso (2012) have convincingly argued that there was an appropriation of Cameralism into Luso-Brazilian economic thought through ideas related to public administration and economic policymaking in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
