Arguably one of the most under-utilized business tools is the public, private partnership (PPP). The PPP is the harmonization of the public sector, which consists of government organizations that are publicly funded and private business owners. What makes the partnership between public and private organizations, in most cases, work so well, is they both leverage the other’s advantages or areas of strength. Felipe Montoro Jens, the infrastructure specialist, reported on one these successful PPP in his native Brazil. Felipe reported on a R$ 44 billion stimulus package, which included substantial investments in a variety of economic sectors in 2018. It was planed at that time for many government-owned and operated businesses to be auctioned to the private sector. As part of the stimulus plans, according to Felipe Montoro Jens, was the Brazilian Mint, Casa da Moeda does Brasil, which manufactures the Brazilian currency. In the case of Casa da Moeda do Brasil, the private sector made available the necessary technology to deter illegal activities such as counterfeit crimes. See more on twitter for more information.
