Comments on: America’s path to alternative energy runs through Brazil http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/03/30/americas-path-to-alternative-energy-runs-through-brazil/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Anonymous http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/03/30/americas-path-to-alternative-energy-runs-through-brazil/#comment-42732 Sun, 01 Apr 2012 17:11:56 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=12341#comment-42732 Brasilia is the power it is today because of Lula’s enlightened leadership. Before Lula its currency regularly crashed, and there was zero safety net for the poor. Today, while far from perfect, there is great hope, the poor are getting some help, and the country is in the best financial condition it has ever seen. We need to understand how intervening to help the general populace, while also practicing financial rectitude can transform a country in a few short years, as it did, magnificently, in Brasil. Instead, we seem to try and follow the neo-con models of Chile and Singapore, where you get either quasi-dictatorship or outright repression. The future is Sweden, Germany and Norway–and Brasil, if it continues on the path of social democracy, looks like it will get there, too. They are the countries whose model works and whose people have the best chance at a healthy, dynamic life–and, neo-con propaganda to the contrary, the best chance for a stable financial future.

Note the Honda Clarity FCV (fuel cell vehicle) driving in the video. Looks ready to me.

This is the USA’s developed technology in Asia??? Why not in the USA?

I am a journalist who had to leave the country or else go to jail or tortured (as you people do with your prisoners in Guantanamo),because of the military coup and subsequent regime that your government helped finance and articulate. We are now beggining to have our voice heard, thank God, and we don’t really need any more patronizing, thank you.
