Números fresquinhos do Eurostat mostram mais uma vez que Portugal é uma das sociedade mais desiguais da UE.
«Portugal’s score on this dimension (Power distance) reflects that hierarchical distance is accepted and those holding the most powerful positions are admitted to have privileges for their position.» «If there is a dimension that defines Portugal very clearly, it is Uncertainty Avoidance. Portugal scores 104 on this dimension and thus has a very high preference for avoiding uncertainty. Countries exhibiting high uncertainty avoidence maintain rigid codes of belief and behaviour and are intolerant of unorthodox behaviour and ideas. In these cultures there is an emotional need for rules (even if the rules never seem to work) time is money, people have an inner urge to be busy and work hard, precision and punctuality are the norm, innovation may be resisted, security is an important element in individual motivation.»
