Indeed it is, a lot of things make a lot of sense for me once I understand the past it explains a bit more of how the country ended up where it is today, I suppose it's true of most countries, but it's like a light bulb switching on when I delve into the past a little more .

There is a book I have been meaning to read called "Chile's hidden history". My wife raves about it, and I just have not had time to get in to it.

I got this from the comments section of a Chilean news site. Was not the first iime I've seen the poster post it as it started months ago. Backs up my claim all along that out of control immigration would eventually be an issue (or was already an issue despite Chile MSM and Chile politicos shoving it under the rug or trying to shame the population into "tolerance" no matter what).

Probably the book is "Historia Secreta de Chile" from Jorge Baradit, who is a Chilean author, very controversial and best seller in Chile. It is good for entertaining but not history at all, mostly fiction, some extracts can be read here http://www.megustaleer.cl/libros/histor ... fragmento/

Hi eeuunieyexpat, big problem with so many inmigrants here in Chile, specially those who are criminals and those who came to live from government welfare- Productive inmigrattion is great, even neutral, but criminals or parasites... mmm

US Visa Waiver Program to be reviewed after this year instead of after two.

Gee, I wonder if Chile's lax immigration policy might have something to do with it?

My normally Chile lefty leaning wife is sounding more conservative every day and will even vote for Piñera if he comes out tough on the issue.

Nothing defines this coming election for me more than the dispicable situation with SENAME. Progressive policy at its worse. Resulting in the death of hundreds of poor little kids, and the rape and abuse of god only knows how many more. And why? To allegedly protect from prosecution; all the little murderous, pillaging, juvenile deliquents doing the horrendous deeds. The system either lets them go to further, destroy the lives of the populous, or throw them in with needy orphanes, to do their worse. So unbelievably badly thoughtout.
The present Socialist, criminally negligent, ruling fool's response is typically to deny, silence, and blame anyone but themselves. Cowards.
Someone has got to finally step up and put underage delinquents where they belong. In penal institutions designed to keep the rest of us safe from them. Though in the ground would appeal to me better at this point.
Signing on to global elitist charters, which dont consider consequences is bad news. This country need leaders who will put their citizens first, not the whim of self serving ideologues.
Which might have the guts politically to do something real about this horrible reality.
Don't Tread On Me Either.

Yea the gov rep today was trying to defend the impending credit risk down grade of chile.

First thing that came to mind was, if you want to fix that: leave!!! And dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

He even tried to take credit for the predicted 2+% growth next year. Yea there will be growth you wanker because you will be out of office.

I just had a meeting yesterday with a group of accountants for several clients regarding the tax reform and trying to do damage control. I should have brought one of those thumb counters to keep track of the number of times they rolled their eyes, fidgeted, shuffled their feet, or itherwise apologized about something stupid in the tax reform. They were biting their tungs with frustration the whole time, and not just going off about how messed up it is, in an attempt to maintain some sort if professional composure in the meeting.

One of the accountants at one point waved at a shelf full of books behind her that is the tax reform, and said, "i have not even got through reading the new tax reform and hope pinera get's elected so i dont have to finish".

I dont know a single company or buisness that was not impacted negatively by that tax reform in some way shape or form. Even if just holding back expansion and investment due to the lack of clarity and comunication. Most of of the biz i have seen impacted, did not find out just how bad it hit them until this tax season. Some of them have to closed their doors. They wont be back for next tax year.

Trump is angling to cancel all 38 countries visa waiver programs. It was pointed out that it would cause most of them to cancel the waiver for u.s. passport holders auto-magicaly. So they are angling to cancel the ones that are not directly tide to u.s. passport holders ability to enter visa free. So for example i believe visa free travel most of europe depends on the visa waver program. Chile's does not. It was given under some other agreement.
