Re: Vina & China

I find the idea that Vina real estate can only go up amusing. I think the opposite is true - they have not had a crash and are due for one. Hopefully not one of the more literal sort. The construction (in Con Con for example) seems to be unaccompanied by bigger roads, additional sewers or additional...

Vina & China

A client sent me this. The people behind evidently promote overseas investment, so it is their job to be "happy-happy". Still, interesting. Dear Overseas Property Alert Reader, Lee HarrisonCristian Laborda Prediction: Chile will soon see big dividends paid to its #1 tourist destination tha...

Re: An Experiment in Importing Bicycles

I would work up a fixed price to sell them to him. Whatever he makes above, that more power to him. That is exactly the arrangement we have settled on here in the US. We buy cheap enough that there's plenty of upside for us, the middleman, and the buyer. We'll likely do the same in Chile. We just m...

Re: An Experiment in Importing Bicycles

I will experiment later with something else. Reason: I am very busy, law practice is doing well, and delays all around. Shipping date moved from January to April. OK, can't look that gift horse in the mouth, but I also dislike sitting on inventory. Especially if come April there is another delay. Al...

Re: The Trump Administration

The second time I have seen the term "deep state" in a comparatively staid publication. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/445042/donald-trump-washington-how-bureaucrats-are-undermining-voters The final sentences are unfortunately dead on: Who rules the United States? The simple and ter...

Re: The Trump Administration

OK, I'm not there yet. I do not see the Deep State as quite that dark. Just the bureaucracy doing what the bureaucracy does, which is bad enough since what they do is accumulate lots of power of all sorts, run our lives, take lots of money, make felons out of too many people, etc. I'm not quite ther...

Re: The Trump Administration

For me, simply "the bureaucracy". I deal with them (specifically the IRS) for a living. I'd be happy to see my job made unnecessary, I'd simply find another. Granted, the IRS is one of the comparatively more accountable bureaucracies due to the existence of the Tax Court. As a businessman,...

Trump Tax Proposals

Except from a newsletter I just sent to clients. Starts subjective, then goes into specific tax proposals, including commentary thereon. Should upset all the right people and mildly annoy but inform the remainder. Trump Tax Changes: How Are REI and Small Businesses Affected? This is one of those art...
