TED talk: Eduardo Paes

I watched Eduardo Paes’s Ted Talk titled “The commandments for Cities”

I was generally not pleased with Eduardo Paes’s talk.  I think that he was the typical neo-liberal leader who bases his success on his countries gross national product rather than the income of its most vulnerable citizens.  When he stated his formula for success he names schools, environmental practices, and green spaces.  I think that of course all these things are great but the truth is that they haven’t saved rio and in this day it is a very sad city.  I think that he should be more honest and show the slums and favelas and the progress that he is doing to bring theses commandments to those places.  Putting a large strip of park in the middle of downtown is not doing anything for those people…
