Re: AFP: Opening the black box

Which is a another issue I still have not found any clarity on. If it is a tax, just call it a tax. If it is suppose to be my retirement money, then put it in an individual account. I do not want that money pooled with anyone else's money. That just is a dinner bell for politicians to raid the retir...

Re: AFP: Opening the black box

Any thoughts on what's been proposed for the AFP reform? All I see are mentions of an extra 4% for the "pilar solidário", whatever that means, and I couldn't find a single source breaking it down in laymen terms. That is pretty much by political design. The little I have managed to scrape from vari...

Re: chile's migration crisis

Re: chile's migration crisis

well, no more guessing if chileans are turning more against migration. now we have a survey of chileans showing the support for migrants is going down. https://m.elmostrador.cl/dia/2019/07/22/y-veras-como-quieren-en-chile-cadem-revela-que-el-57-de-las-personas-no-quiere-dejar-entrar-a-los-migrantes-...

Re: chile's migration crisis

so here is the type of crap that the "refugee advocates" are pushing, and why my own sympathy for them is running thin. https://www.caracaschronicles.com/2019/07/20/stranded-between-peru-and-chile/ this so over the top, i am not even sure where to begin. they are spinning the problems these people a...

Re: chile's migration crisis

yea, this is a bit worrying, but not surprising. here is an article about entel cutting some employees, that really has nothing to do with immigration. the comments under the article however are blaiming it on immigrants. https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/economia/negocios-y-empresas/2019/07/19/vi...

Re: corredors and boilerplate leases

That new rental law reform was way way over due. I don't think the left ever made the connection between availability and price of rentals, in relation to the cost and risk of renting. No one wants to take the risk of renting to anyone with even a hint of credit or financial issues, because it costs...

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

https://news.yahoo.com/lithium-rich-chile-botched-plan-051151132.html I was just thinking about this the other day after I heard the other company pulled out. Who set up that original deal to bring companies to Chile ? It is typical socialist interfering in Markets with feel good policies that igno...

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

this article hits a nail on the head, of an idea that I have been sort of scratching in the back of my own head for a while. namley, do we really care about income inequality, or something else? https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-07-17/income-inequality-isn-t-the-thing-that-s-making-peo...

Re: chile's migration crisis

But Chilean (and Singaporean) citizens can apply for a separate H1B lottery. It's not like there isn't a way for her to get in. Gah! I kept thinking, if that is a reason for receiving asylum, what are all those people in California going to go when the big one hits. :lol: They will probably all try...
