Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

And Trump declared today that Biden will kill all the cows “and other animals.”

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I would recommend listening to the guys with the guns at the airport, that are in charge of turning you around and sending you back from where you came from vs. an airline lobbying organization. Who also enjoy power games like the mujer PDI official who gave me a hard time because my carnet was rec...

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

To that you could add probably a half dozen more problems, including a stock market that seems increasingly untied to reality, a president seemingly hell bent on creating violence in cities (3000 protesters in the streets of Portland last night), an election campaign guaranteed to be one of the dirt...

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

There is another phenomenon that happens during a deep recession that I keep seeing pop-up, but almost no economist I have seen try to address. people that downgrade their employment and their income. I guess generally you could call it "under employment"; but, that does not really capture it. In u...

Re: Is USA the Chile of Pinochet?

I would agree with mem--not there yet, but trending in an uncomfortable direction. I've seen some speculation that the administration may be trying to provoke a more violent response from the protesters in order to justify a more violent crackdown. The government officers are apparently targeting pe...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The U.S. is headed for an even bigger disaster than they already have. election year, crossed with school starting, combined with unemployment benefits running out, crossed with Trump. oh, almost forgot, crossed with a pandemic. It can, and probably will get much worse. The "crossed with Trump" par...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The number that the experts in the US are paying a lot of attention to is the per cent positive of new tests. They suggest that a positive rate of 3-6% is desirable. I note that Chile's per cent positive today is 15%, down from 24-25% a coupe of weeks ago, but much higher than 3-6% and about equal ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I got mine a couple of weeks ago in Santiago. Nobody in the office at 10 am--they told us we missed the morning rush. All they did was look at my ID. No fingerprint check. My Chilean wife had forgot her ID at home, and they gave her a CU (or better put the code to activate the CU) anyway. Hint: chec...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I am coming up on ten months of my first temporary residency visa, and need to renew. I recall in I believe mid March some info in this thread about cedulas being extended during the current crisis. It was all up in the air at that time. Am I correct in assuming that I still need to apply for the vi...
