Adam Milstein is a businessman and real estate investor. He’s also a writer who has penned many articles for The Times of Israel. His latest article is about instilling pride and courage in Jewish kids and raising them to be proud of their heritage. In this article he talks about a Jewish rebel group 2200 years ago named the Maccabees. At the time the area where Israel is now situated was militarily held by Greek forces. Many of the Jewish people living there at the time sought to assimilate into Greek culture, especially those who lived in cities.
The Maccabees, though, didn’t want anything to do with assimilation Adam Milstein says. They used guerrilla-style tactics to get Greece to pull back out of the region and leave it to the Jewish people. He says that Jews today need to take the same pride in the culture and how they raise their children to be proud of their history and uniqueness in the world.
There are many gifts that Adam Milstein writes can be handed down to those in the next generation. The first is being proud to be a Jew. He says he feels fortunate every day to be Jewish and the people upon whom Western values are based. He also wants to pass on courage and fighting for what you really believe in. This includes standing up against those who threaten the future of Israel.
For centuries Jewish people were stateless. Because of this they highly valued education and knowledge. Adam Milstein writes that every household with children needs to prioritize education. This will help them thrive in a 21st-century economy and also develop wisdom. He also says that Jewish people have a long history of innovation including developing the Theory of Relativity. Because of this innovation they have survived and adapted through many events over the course of history.
One of the other gifts that Adam Milstein writes about being passed on is passion. Passion, he says, is one of the main ways to find personal fulfillment in life. He says every day of your life matters and you should really care about how your spend your time and resources in order to live life to its fullest.
According to a recent statement from Felipe Montoro Jens, 18 government auctions are expected to be held in Brazil during the last quarter of 2017. Jens is an infrastructure projects expert and the auctions he is referring to are infrastructure-related. He also pointed out the fact that this particular program was designed for encouraging new players to participate in the concessions. And, also according to Jens, last April’s auction of transmission lines was actually the biggest one in history.
Tarcisio Gomes de Freitas Speaks Out
Another major player in this Brazilian scenario is Tarcisio Gomes de Freitas. He is the Investment Partnerships Program (PPI) project coordination secretary. According to him, increasing productivity in Brazil presents a major challenge and it involves the overwhelming need for expanding and modernizing Brazil’s infrastructure sector. He also stated that one of their main goals is to correct the many mistakes of the past involving Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). He further explained that state over-intervention was the cause of a project risk imbalance and that they can’t be held hostage to their fiscal budget. One of the major advantages of the PPI is the ability to build governance on special projects.
Michel Temer Becomes President
On August 31, 2016, Michel Temer became the President of the Republic. Subsequently, there were 44 PPI infrastructure auctions held just during his first year in office. As a result, about R $ 23 billion in investments was captured, according to Jens. And, according to Gomes de Freitas and the PPI, potential investors are now seeing that the Brazilian government under Temer is no longer anti-business but has now definitely become pro-business. Their overall aim is selecting those projects that will be especially attractive to investors in the private sector. And, so far, it looks like they’re succeeding in doing just that.
