Teixeira explores the understudied period in the 1930s and 1940s when Brazil and Portugal experimented with corporatism. By examining the dictatorships of Brazil and Portugal, Teixeira demonstrates how they both pounced upon corporatism as a means of creating a productive economy. In A Third Path (Princeton University Press), Teixeira investigates the creativity exhibited by both countries with their economic policies, ultimately demonstrating how they are still important and relevant today.
