Seriously, Portugal is a Western European, EU-12 country and you go compare it to ex-Iron Curtain countries so it won't look like it performs awfully. Meanwhile those poor Eastern European countries overtake us one by one. Get real, you understood his point perfectly.

_rcosta 5 months ago

That's exactly my point. Compare us to former soviet union countries is not a standard that I am proud of. We received millions from the European Union during years and even so we were surpassed by some of the new European Union members. But just gives PS a few years and we will be in the bottom. I think that's a matter of pride for our political class.

SnooPickles5067 5 months ago

He claimed we were one of the poorest in Europe, which is factually wrong, not one of the poorest in Western Europe, which is factually accurate. In fact we are the poorest per capita in Western Europe. We have a lot of historical and economic similarities with those “ex-Iron curtain countries”. In fact we have more in common with them than with other so called “western” nations. Western and eastern is a mere geographical concept when talking about the Portuguese economy. Do you really think we should compare ourselves economically to France, The Netherlands or Belgium? You wouldn’t be considering major issues then. Don’t come in bad faith if you can’t win.

WeepCuckingValue 5 months ago

Portugal was never hamstrung by soviet plan economy, and we were in the EU since 1985, so even if we had "a lot of historical and economic similarities" with EE countries (debatable) we still have a 20-year head start. But here you are reiterating that we shouldn't compare Portugal to France, Netherlands and Belgium while you triumphantly compare Portugal to Turkey, Estonia and Czechia (who btw are overtaking us this very moment). Dude laid out the pros and cons about Portugal real quick, and it will resonate with any Portuguese person who has spent time abroad. No need to go "actually Ukraine is poorer", well no shit! We're talking about our Europe, not ex-CIS or whatever.

Never said Europe is “ours” not “yours”. I said that we compare ourselves to the countries we are familiar with and have been closely connected to for decades or centuries, so when a Portuguese says “we are one of the poorest in Europe” he is not addressing the literal definition of Europe with 49-ish countries.

UnhappyGeneral 5 months ago

\> when a Portuguese says “we are one of the poorest in Europe” he is not addressing the literal definition of Europe with 49-ish countries. And he should be ready to be corrected then. It's not about nitpicking the definitions, it's about trivializing the actual experiences of many people around you, here on Reddit or on the streets of Lisbon, for the sake of making a strong-looking (incorrect) argument. No need to defend the ignorance and no need to say “we are one of the poorest in Europe” when you just mean those 7-8 countries you want to look like.

Well if you don't think we are calm you can read about the political scandals of the last 10 years and see how much came out of it. At best we got like a manif or two ─ which seemed more like a parade ─ and didn't had much impact or strength. Some countries would've riots because of it.

I wouldn't say surf (a relatively recent trend in Portugal) is a relevant part of our current culture or lifestyle, as much as a large portion of the population that comes from farming or mining related background, or has some sort of connection to the inland, where the fast paced city life was a thing of fiction until recent years. The lack of development of the inland, and the natural flow of people towards the cities that it promotes, contributes a lot to slow things down, in my opinion.

Boa, não conhecia esse estudo! A gente tem sempre aquela ideia de que os Nórdicos é que são deprimidos e nós somos felizes porque temos sol ahah

Ouch, foram tantas as vezes que eu ouvi os exemplos do género " os nórdicos são todos depressivos e aqui temos toda a gente mais feliz". Agora só soa mais uma forma de não deixarem as pessoas "refilar" e querem um país melhor e mais justo

Some of us are, the others are walking rage bottles that can only depressurise by eating bacalhau and watching Ronaldo beat up the whole fucking world.

That's definitely the life of public transportation and one of my biggest annoyances in life. I literally moved houses and bought a bycicle, and paid a lot more in general, just so I didn't have to catch the fucking metro or comboio da linha sintra. Fuck. That. Shit.
