Energy & Truckers

There is a common and worrying aspect involving the energy and transportation sectors.

In the case of energy, there is a "neutral environment" - arbitration chambers, to resolve conflicts. But the preference, by far, is using the Justice. And so, what should take a few months typically lasts for many years. And in the meantime, the cost of the "unresolved" is passed on to the "others", that have nothing todo with the conflict itself.

In the case of truck drivers, the simplest and most obvious is that of negotiation between the counterparts. But not! Using the "centralization" path through the Government is the preferred method.

Unfortunately, in my opinion, the choice falls under tutelary, centralizing, populist systems, which have little to do with democracy and mainly, as practice shows, are poorly resolved. And so they return to the agenda frequently, generating additional costs for the whole society.

The cost of Brazilian transport is twice that of Argentina. We are the most expensive among the BRICS. when it comes to electric power.

And so what? Who cares?
