Abstract:

In this paper I show that ideal points estimated from observed legislative behavior in Brazil reveal a pro vs. anti government dimension rather than an ideological cleavage. I then propose a method to retrieve ideological positions from survey data and discuss how ideology and observed behavior relate to each other. The paper documents the relative stability of the ideological structure of Brazilian parties, but also shows that ideology has wanned as a determinant of legislator behavior.
