A consulting company owned by three Brazilians named Caio Mesquita, Felipe Miranda, and Rodolfo Amstalden, Empiricus Research seeks to gain customers by advertising political themes on Google and Facebook. A couple of examples include “Where to invest if Dilma leaves” and “What if Aecio Neves wins?
Which stocks should go up if Aecio wins the elections?” One can also subscribe to Empiricus Research’s newsletters, as there currently are 180,000 people who receive these letters. Besides these methods of advertising, Empiricus Research also offers free bulletins, along with different plans for monthly subscriptions of paid bulletins.
Empiricus Research is known to defend what is considered to be politically incorrect and gained a lot of publicity after their 2014 video named “The End of Brazil.” The film was sponsored for social media views and Google Ads. In this video, Dilma Rouseff’s government policies were criticized and it was predicted that Brazil’s economy would meet with disaster.

Founded in 1978 and based out of Baltimore, MD, The Agora focuses greatly on newsletters and operates many publications about finance, health, and travels, among other themes. It is the holding and shareholder controller of Empiricus Research.
