This note studies the supply conditions and the demand behavior in the first
months of the Cruzado, Collor and Real plans. The main conclusion is that, independently
upon the real interests, consumption presents a similar qualitatively pattern. Hence, as it
seems unavoidable an increase in consumption in the first months, economic policy makers
should previously create supply conditions before the implementation of plans. In this point
of view, the Real Plan was the one which presented the best supply conditions relatively to
Cruzado and Collor plans.
