In our days unless fortunate almost all the people recurs to credit. Ho maries wants their own home says a Portuguese saying, then the problem arises when bad luck knocks at the door step and all goes down the toilet, and we see ourselves struggling to get a job before unemployment fund runs out. In today’s culture means making use of connections gathered during life. Therefore the obedience in today’s working environment that if there were bad intended employees we were condemned to serve. It’s not by chance that a famous banker once said give me the financial control of a country that I care not ho rules it.
I don’t remember where or when I heard that in the Portuguese colonial war the natives were taking drugs to be able to slaughter. Stories I heard that in the Portuguese quarters something similar happened. In a TV report showed that in a Asian country some employers encourage their employees to take drugs to improve their productivity. Even the other day during a flight I saw a video were it was announced a 100% natural drug that adolescents were taking in UK, capable of improving students concentration. In what regards Pharmaceuticals I always suspect, it is not the first time that a drug is withdrawal from the market.
With the lack of productivity that the Portuguese are accused of, one of these days someone might remember putting in the company’s canteens some magic salt to improve productivity.
