As a global citizen and frequent traveler, I am given the opportunity to see how different countries do things.
And I form an opinion of what I see as best practice. For example, did you know that Brazil’s response to the oil crisis in the ‘70s was to invest in alternative technologies for fuel, and that almost all cars in Brazil now work on, at a minimum, combination ethanol and petrol? Did you know that in Montreal, Paris and other cities in Europe, you can pick up a bicycle for free from numerous bike stands, and re-park it at another stand when you reach your destination? And, to be a little more controversial and show my bias, most Western European countries provide reasonably good free health care for all, a process accepted by rich and poor, conservative and liberal. Anything else would be seen there as third world practice.
