    World Cup "catastrophic"

    How can they get this done with an endemic shortage of trained construction workers? The housing boom has sucked out all of the labor supply.

    Lula's legacy...not good.

    Marcos de Souza, director of Portal da Copa 2014, an independent website that covers all news related to the World Cup, says the event is likely to be catastrophic.

    "Now we have a very, very short time to work, and probably a lot of money will be spent and wasted in new arenas without planning, without good projects and maybe we'll have a legacy, for the next 10 to 20 years, of problems and debts for the country," he says.

    • Blah blah blah.

      GFA earnings will accelerate into the next several quarters.

      Brazil puts forth excellent results on major projects and ... is particularly well known for its massive public events and festivals.

        LOL - who are you? You mean like Reveillon or Carnaval? Those are hardly highly coordinated events and they don't bring forth any particular great result, but by all means, what projects are you referring to outside of Pan-American games? Again - lol. GFA will be hard pressed to turn increasing profits as the credit bubble gets punctured.

    • They are opening their doors to foreign Architect, engineering, and construction firms. Firms such as CH2M Hill are giving up work here in the US to better concentrate on this market. Long story short, all they need is a lil 'help from their friends' to just 'Get er done!'
      Cheers - B
