July 7, 2012 SouthAmerica: With More Freshwater than the US and Canada Combined Brazil... With More Freshwater than the US and Canada Combined Brazil... http://www.brazzil.com/component/co...t-learned-to-share-its-treasure.html#comments Ricardo: Brazil should never privatize its freshwater system in any way, and I gave the solution for Brazil to develop its freshwater system on my article "The Smartest Thing China Could Do Right Now: Invest US$ 200 Billion in Brazil". The author of the above article said: âIt is unlikely that the Brazilian government would accept any move to privatize water, and current President Dilma Rousseff's populist stance suggests that water commodification has no place in Brazil for the time being.â It's obvious to me that the author of the above article is in favor of privatization of the water system in Brazil, and place it on the hands of a few major corporations for them to rape the people as they did in Bolivia a few years ago. He describe the current policy in Brazil as: âpopulist stance suggests that water commodification has no place in Brazil for the time being.â That means that this fool thinks that in the future the corporations are going to muscle in and get their way at the expense of the population in Brazil. He also said on this article: âIn one of history's most radical water policy decisions, Cardoso's National Water Act of 1997 categorically defined all Brazilian waters as public property. As a result, Brazil has both abundant renewable freshwater resources and the administrative ability to control them.â It was not a radical water policy decision as the author mentioned on his article. And in my opinion former president Cardoso was 100 percent right to define all Brazilian waters as public property.
