Book Tribute to the Market discusses the imbalance in competition between companies


With this new work, ETCO places at the center of the discussion one of the most important themes for a country's economic development: combating competition imbalances and ensuring an ethical and healthy business environment. With a final text by journalist Oscar Pilagallo, the book is the result of the Seminar on Tax Competition Imbalance and the Brazilian Constitution, which ETCO and the Federal Magistrates School of the First Region provided in Brasília in May this year, with the aim of discussing the article 146-A, which is part of constitutional amendment 42 and provides for special taxation criteria to prevent imbalances in competition between companies.

The event was attended by authorities and experts on the subject, such as: • André Franco Montoro Filho, chief executive of ETCO; • Everardo Maciel, former IRS secretary and ETCO advisor; • Hamilton Dias de Souza, specialist in Tax Law; • Humberto Ávila, specialist in Tax Law; • Luís Eduardo Schoueri, professor of Tax Law at the Faculty of Law of the University of São Paulo; • Luiz Fux, Minister of the Superior Court of Justice (STJ); • Marcílio Marques Moreira, former Minister of Finance and president of the ETCO Advisory Council; • Mariana Tavares de Araújo, secretary of Economic Law; • Otacílio Cartaxo, Federal Revenue Secretary; • Rafael Favetti, executive secretary of the Ministry of Justice; • Tércio Sampaio Ferraz Júnior, professor at the Faculty of Law of the University of São Paulo.
