Finding an interesting (personal/academic) topic for a research project is one of the most difficult things an human being can achieve.

I have seen most of my colleagues suffering from anxiety in their fight against that (and I see some of them). But, that friday, I finally "saw the light". Call me pratyekabuddha. :-)

Adam and me were discussing the interesting cases of Perú and Brazil that Friday. He has a recent indepth knowledge of the late Lula's success policies, and I found those previous weeks a lot of information about the radical fiscal reforms in Perú. The contrasting cases, specially if we attend to the popularity of both presidents at the beginning of his mandate and now, are examples of similar strategies with different results... Why?

He told me I can write a paper for May, 23th. Why not? :-)
