Park Investments

Posted on July 18, 2013 in News

Not happy with the previous aid from the Government, automobile industry now call for more grants to keep car sales. But, why should we give priority to this sector and no optics, sausages or the trimmings, for example? The Government of Rodriguez Zapatero has passed half legislature pondering the virtues of a new more sustainable than the current economy and which is yet to be seen. And which sector does not better represent the vituperada old economy as the automobile? It is the most polluting, consumes fuel oil scarce and import instead of renewable energy, promotes individualism against the solidarity of the public transport, supposes a constant and costly human lives indent and obliges always insufficient road investments: the Park of automobiles increases much faster than the road network. I do not understand, therefore, the commitment to divert our dwindling resources to that sector. I know, of course, the employment it generates and their effects induced on other activities. But the same thing happened in his time with the shipbuilding or blast furnaces and their respective conversions gave an important push to the country’s economy. Therefore, prevail even more car sales while reducing at AVE and in other collective infrastructure investments, it would be a cruel irony: induce citizens to a higher consumption registration, insurance, reviews, gasoline, tolls, ITV, repair, circulation, while personal income goes down because of the economic crisis.
