The whole economy missed the point.

Hiking a collapse.

Marcelo Marini is unsatisfied with Southern Brazil.

We arrived near midday; the sun was beautiful, the green was fantastic, mountains and a feeling of hiking. However, it’s a particular place in Brazil where people don’t invest in tourism like most of the not trendy places in the country; that’s why we don’t know how to start.

Do we need a map?

In the meantime, we crossed thousand of trucks, those same trucks that go from Cruz Alta to Rio Grande Port to export Brazilian Soybeans to China… 

There’s a certain feeling that we got messed up someplace… driveway is so bad and busy, and Gas is about R$ 6,99 per liter. Is the government stealing us? Perhaps some oil company? What happened with commodity prices?

In the middle of the green forest comes a particular thought…Do we produce what is right?

How come we create every new tool for measuring productivity, and we became poorer? 

There’s always some time rhythm in life. No plant grows in a day!

This civilization needs to rethink, do we measure GDP for what?

Can we compare the US, UK, Europe, and China?

Behind Argentina, Venezuela, Russia? Never…

But are we measuring productivity instead of efficiency? Why?

Or maybe we just missed the point.

More to come.
