Re: Housing market situation

If copper dives and the economy tanks, it could lead to a decline. Hello? Is a 55% dive in copper not a dive? http://www.infomine.com/investment/metal-prices/copper/all/ And is the GDP dropping by 15% not an economy tanking? https://www.google.com/search?q=GDP+Chile&rls=com.microsoft:en-US&ie=UTF-8...

Re: The World Bank manipulated Chile's competitiveness rankings

Most "open a company in a day" programs accross the globe are focused in getting micro and small businesses to register themselves, including sole proprietorships. The way it works in places like Canada, for example, is that you cannot get involved in any economic activity as a natural person. You ...

Re: Birth of Child

Just a speculation, but they probably do have an exemption for religious people here as well, just like they had in the Soviet block countries back then, where they were drafted but strictly in non-combat roles.

Re: Fresh milk and farmers cheese

If by fresh you mean unpasteurized, then it's illegal to sell that here for human consumption. I found that people are pretty cautious when I drove around looking for it here in the fifth region, but you might still find it through some friends or acquaintances. And if farmer's cheese is the same as...

Re: The Pinera administration 2.0

Immigration... My proposal is get rid of it. It is not doing anything anyway. It is just making everyone's life more difficult.

Re: Chile 2017 Presidential Election

That's how all CIS countries operate too and they are not "left" in general. Just implementing a corrupted grab of power via loyal public sector. For example, pro-government demonstrations in Russia are always filled with teachers, doctors, and government workers. Same in Canada, plus members of un...

Re: BCG Vaccine
