Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

I have seen some workable ideas for the universal income, but the key was to cut most the money and beucracy for all the other social programs down to the absolute minimum.

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

I was never completly sold on the basic income idea, although the progressive ideals in me always pushed me into accepting it. Right now I just think its a bad idea. I mean yeah I accept it in times of extreme crisis, like *now*, but not as a system. I am trying to change a window on my appartment ...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

I just had a thought. I bet of you took a poll right now, who is going to write the constitution is the least important thing to chileans right now. for a sanity check, ask if they know who they are going to vote for. At least I sure as hell have no idea at this moment, beyond a vague "I want people...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

The only problem with basic income is that many people do not take the risk and the basic income becomes their only income. As this is insufficient, they ask for/demand more. so what? Like that is any different than right now, just people get to bitch about it from poverty and all the social proble...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Almost no one seems to give a dam that there is a vote to elect people to rewrite the constitution next week. Even a lot of politicians seem rather uninterested in it. Politicians all seem to be focused on the next congressional, mayor, or presidential election; people are focused on getting out of ...

Re: Does Chile Property Price Bubble?

I think the rental market is sort of a victim of its own success in Santiago. If there was a bubble, it was in apartments. especially small apartments. too many people speculating on airBnB money. That got popped early on. the rental market will come back, just not many want to commit to upgrading t...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Interesting, admin, I did not know that they were supposed to have a police officer at the checkpoint. The two times during this lockdown that I have seen checkpoints, they were only manned by military guys with guns. Both times they were stopping people going in the opposite direction so they didn...

Her clients have deep pockets. well a bunch of them got fined / charged for violating the sanitary barriers. There is a process in Chile that allows prosecutors to sort of u...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Like I ran in to a military checkpoint this week. as I am sitting there waiting my turn, I realized that checkpoint was illegal. it was like 10 guys from the army, and one girl from the minister of health. no Carabineros nor PDI present. None of them have authority under the constitution to actually...

"...this Saturday the Third Chamber of the Valparaíso Court of Appeals decided that falsifying a permiso de desplazamiento from the Comisaría Virtual does not constitute a crime..." (but rather an "administrative offense"). https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nacional/chile/2021/05/08/otro-reves-ju...
