RIOS VERA, José Luis. Three stages of the “soft” coup in Brazil: towards a social rearticulation of capital. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.43, pp.183-204. ISSN 0797-5538.

This article reflects on three major stages that constitute the Brazilian institutional political coup between the years 2016-2017. In the first stage we studied the process of consummation of the coup in May 2016 and the economic foundation in which it rests: the violent social rearticulation of capital directed by the financial fraction of the great capital. In the second stage we studied the reasons that put to the brink of the collapse to the government of Michel Temer to fear as well as its results. Finally, we highlight the new episode of the coup d’état defined by the process of disabling the most popular candidate for the presidential contest of 2018.

Keywords : Coup; fiscal discipline; hegemonic instability; Frente Brasil Popular.
