Galvanic Tripartite Amazon River Basin Macro-Imagineering

Richard Brook Cathcart

Resumo


Referencing basic statements on macro-engineering’s innovation-phase organization penned separately by Panero and Davidson, Team Geographos offers a new global commerce enhancing tripartite transportation macro-project, the postulated Trans-Pacific Brazil-Peru-China Trade Route. The latitudinal TPB-P-CTR may become an economically feasible substitute or supplement to a 21st Century China-supported trans-American railway designed to connect Peru’s Pacific Ocean coast with Brazil’s Atlantic Ocean coast. In effect, a New World-originated concept that could globalize the developed infrastructure of the entire Amazon River Basin. Whilst certainly remarkably speculative, technically, the suggested TPB-P-CTR could create common destinies (yet still multi-national) for tropic zone of Peru and Brazil, operationalized by substantial financial and technical inputs mainly from China’s temperate zone seaport-based communities.

Key words: Global commerce, macro-engineering, tripartite transportation macro-project.

Fazendo referência a declarações básicas sobre a organização da fase de inovação da macroengenharia, escritas separadamente por Panero e Davidson, a Team Geographos oferece um novo macroprojeto de transporte tripartido que fortalece o comércio global, a postulada Transpacífico Brasil-Peru-China. A latitudinal TPB-P-CTR pode se tornar um substituto ou suplemento economicamente viável para uma ferrovia transamericana com suporte da China do século 21, projetada para conectar a costa do Oceano Pacífico no Peru com a costa do Oceano Atlântico no Brasil; com efeito, um conceito originado no Novo Mundo que poderia globalizar a infraestrutura de toda a bacia do rio Amazonas. Ainda que em grande medida especulativo, do ponto de vista técnico o CTR-TPB sugerido poderia criar destinos comuns, mas ainda multinacionais, para a região do Peru e do Brasil, operacionalizados por substanciais insumos financeiros e técnicos, principalmente das comunidades baseadas em portos da zona temperada da China.

Palavras-chave: Comércio global, macroengenharia, macroprojeto de transporte tripartite.
