Few contrasts could be as stark as those between Venezuela and its neighbor, Brazil. Over the last 20 years, Venezuela has chosen to go in the direction of big government socialism. This has ended with predictably catastrophic results. Today, Venezuela features some of the highest murder rates in the world and its citizens are routinely found scavaging in the streets and killing animals such as dogs and cats, just to avoid starving to death. The country is in ruins, it doesn’t even have enough money to fund the extraction of its own vast oil resources. The socialist experiment in Venezuela is an abject failure and a powerful verdict on the heavy-handed intervention in the free market. It should be a fate that all countries seek to avoid at all costs.
On the other hand, Brazil has been a huge success story. Whereas Venezuela has pursued heavy-handed government intervention, Brazil took a more moderate approach, allowing for entrepreneurs and individual companies to largely guide economic development within the country. Even 20 years ago, Venezuela had the reputation for being one of the most developed and pristine countries in Latin America and Brazil had the reputation as being a third-world fever swamp dominated by backwards, tribal politics and poverty. Today those roles are completely reversed. Brazil is increasingly becoming the leading nation of Latin America, with many cities, such as Sao Paulo, Salvador and Manaus developing at record scale, becoming the equals of the best first-world cities across the globe.
One of the key players in this transformation of the country into one of the most sought-after destinations for the rich, powerful and intellectual elite has been JHSF Participacaoes. Under the leadership of its dynamic CEO, Jose Auriemo Neto, JHSF Participacaoes has been responsible for building some of the most impressive developments in the history of Latin America. Through its focus on high-end luxury space, JHSF Participacaoes has done more than any other company in Brazil to attract the massive influx of foreign capital that is now flooding the Brazilian markets and into its many metropolises.
