Daniel Bustos blogs [1] [es] from Colombia on the economy of the World Cup in Brazil and after touching upon the inevitable issue of corruption, states: 

Finally, Brazil will serve as a “guinea pig” for the Latin American countries that someday had dreamt of organizing this great event, it will serve to ask if Brazil will have good returns with all of the inverted infrastructure or if, on the contrary, it was a serious and costly error, if it will make countries like ours reflect on what is being done in the governments in matters of infrastructure, employment, education, and of course, investing in the sport all so that one day a World Cup could be organized.

The outlined post participated in the second #GVBlogsMonday [2] [es] on May 12, 2014.
