Für Insider ist es nicht erstaunlich: Nachdem die Embraer in mittleren Flugzeuggrössen (70-120 Passagiere) sich bereits eine internationalen Namen erworben hat, zeigt sie sich in einem aktuellen Artikel der WELT die Embraer als Alternative zu etablierten Flugzeugbauern im Militärsektor

Fast schüchtern mutet dabei das Vorgehen des brasil. Vertriebs an, man könne ja mal die KC-390 als Alternative zur AIRBUS A400 in Betracht ziehen. Man ist geneigt den Flugzeugbauern zu glauben … „Ihr werdet sie lieben…“.

Brasilien steckt sowohl politisch, als auch ökonomisch in einer sehr schweren Krise.  Das Problem ist sowohl ein ökonomisches, ein politisches, als auch ein gesellschaftliches. Es dreht sich um einen vollständigen Vertrauensverlust der Bevölkerung, sowohl in Behörden, Institutionen, Unternehmen als auch – und das wiegt am schwersten – in den bislang stoizistischen Glauben an die eigene Fähigkeit einer gesellschaftlichen Erneuerung.

Anbei einige Artikel der letzten Monate:

NTV vom 29.04.2016 – Arbeitslosenzahlen steigen rapide

WELT vom 18.09.2015 – Der kranke Mann vom Amazonas

ZEIT vom 20.08.2015 – Die Brasilianische Totalkrise

Dennoch – der Geschäftsklimaindex der Wirtschaft der bedeutenden Regionen S, SE und NE zeigt nach dem „erfolgreichen“ Impeachment Verfahren steil nach oben – unabhängig von Unternehmensgrösse und Region – und hat inzwischen den Durchschnitsswert von 54,1 Punkten wieder erreicht.

Expected ambiental scandal along the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016

The scandal of the polluted Guanbara Bay has a coming out now. Multiresistent bacteria were found in the sewage water flowing from the old Rio Carioca directly into Guanbara Bay near Flamengo Beach – one of the declared olympic sailing areas (read more in BBC, The Telegraph and Reuters). Of course one can argue about the origin of the pollution. In the adjacent parts of the city Laranjeiras and Botafogo we find lots of hospitals.

In Aug 2014, some officials described the pollution not as dangerous and the water quality as more or less the same as in other comparable locations (read more).

But the real scandal is not the severe danger for health to the Olympics. Its rather the fact that the majorality of Rio de Janeiro knew about this problem for much more than a decade. On Flamengo Beach, a lot of families and little children having a good time on weekends, swiming, playing, etc. This situation seems to reflect again the exotic mindset of many officials – a combination of arrogance, disrespect, thoughtlessness and asininity.

In mid 2014, Eduardo Paes already announced (read more), that the ambicious targets towards a clean bay could (probably) not be held. Lets have a look in 2015 what other developments will take place.

The PETROBRAS crisis

Following the newspapers and journals the last weeks, the actual situation at PETROBRAS – one of the largest Brazilian companies – is still getting worse. After the arrest of leading managers of PETROBRAS and major Brazilian building companies (NZZ_15.11.2014), a new article from Alexander Busch describes now the actual situation and new developments. The article – published yesterday (NZZ_21.11.2014) – draws an insightful overview.

As PETROBRAS also has a very strong influence on the BOVESPA (stock index Sao Paulo), the crisis has the potential to damage the Brazilian economy in a very serious way, due to severe side effects. On the other hand one could argue that finally after this coming out, the things can only get better – representing new business opportunities for foreign companies. But this will only happen, when the crisis management will be improved, forced by internal OR even external activities (as we can read in the article).

As a regular visitor and „almost“ citizen of Rio de Janeiro, I was very interested about the trail of the new „Transcarioca“ bus line, connecting the Olympic City in Barra da Tijuca with the „Galeao“ – Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport. To tell the truth, I had no idea about the correct trail. The video behind the link gives a very good insight into the road line with of length of approx. 39 km and also the dimension of the city, crossing parts a regular tourist does not take into account.

Of course one could ask why not use a train or metro to connect this urban regions, givin‘ the city a new innovative perspective. In fact a metro connection to the airport would be very useful. Maybe one day the public transport lobby can be convinced towards new solutions… using the present bus basement to install some kind of „trem-sinho“, which is already part of the plans of the New Harbour District in Rio. Some talk about a rebirth of the old harbour area – maybe justified.
