The energy that is spent in Brazil to fight corruption is greater than its continental size. In financial terms, it consumes significant portions, which surpass even the production costs.

Part of that was seen in works that would be delivered to the World Cup and the Olympics, such as lines of subways, buses, and its stations, as well as airfields and the “Lava Jato” operation.
