Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

A less badly behaving china on human right, democracy, freedom of speech, environment, and playing by international trade standards, etc, etc, is directly linked to chinas ability to follow through with its development.

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

I have access to all three recent articles on that site regarding the closure. Maersk official releases stick to the market changed in those three years from under capacity to "heavy overcapacity" and of the problem with supply of local inputs for the production at the Chile plant (this is supposed...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

With the women’s’ rights I was trying to make a very broad comparison with another struggle that is eventually having some success after a long time. I don’t mean for my analogies to be that close to each other or anything. When I made my ranking of countries ethically (as mentioned at the start of...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

They're already collecting them in the EU. All the software and digital services have a VAT there. I can imagine they do, everyone else seems to lack the will or capapilities to deal with the big tech firms it seems, you can call the EU bureaucratic or whatever else you like but lately they are the...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Speaking for myself, If I were Chilean, I guess I would be a facho pobre . But I guess I'm just an expat whiner. Whine, whine. When immigrants who have lived in other places and should have some points of reference join the choir of "everything is so bad and getting worse", it's plain harmful. So w...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Well....like everything else here the Revisión Técnica depends on who you know.... I see fewer cars with plumes of smoke behind them here than in Canada. Cars generally seem to be in a better state of maintenance here, and I think that's only thanks to better revision tecnica. In Canada they only c...

Coima city dude!
And how many years do you have living in Chile then? :) Seriously though, I think it's just a matter of setting up the program properly. Chilean Revision Tecnica comes to mind as an example of a properly set up program. It can be done.

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Soooo? Do nothing then ? Do exactly what then? They could get some thermal leak detectors (36 bucks on Amazon, shipping and duties included Most can't, at least not directly, even if they wanted to. Somehow I think the realities of living here, as experienced by the majority, escape you. Gloria had...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

What about cleaner heating source together with insulation? That would be the "cat's pijamas". Like what, exactly? Imported gas is expensive. Electricity with that winter sobreconsumo surcharge is even worse, even if the pathetic electricity grid that exists in most places could handle the extra lo...

He said that will be ready by next year, it...

Luckily for Trumpf, US economy still going strong
I kinda feel US propaganda is about the only thing that's still going strong over there. Shadowstats.com gives US inflation at 6% and unemployment at 21.5%.
