The problem is that talking about Apple and Google gets attention.

An example of this is the fact that most of the posts here talk about them and not about the article which concerns the difference between startups and established companies. What is sad is that I have just done the same by replying.

Your link also indicates that Portugal's public debt is 75.2% of the GDP (getting this number from the CIA fact book and the other one from The Economist).

The United States' public debt is 88% of the GDP without the huge investment in renewable sources of energy. What's their excuse?

I'm not saying Portugal's economy is better than that of the United States — it isn't. I'm just pointing out that public debt as a percentage of the GDP is not the best way to assess the health of an economy or if an investment in cleaner energy is a good idea.

Never ask two questions in a business letter. The reply will discuss the one you are least interested, and say nothing about the other.
