I did suggest subcontracting Chile's administration out to the Swiss, or some other upright nation some years ago, as a joke....
Far from a joke, Ancient Rus' was bootstrapped like this: the Slavic tribes invited some viking nobles to rule them because they had "no order" in their lands.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I can't see how this act confirms that they are "communists" and can't see why they shouldn't demand for Rozas to go away. Also, communists are extremely well organized through worker unions, while FA doesn't have anything like this and caters to young middle-class voters. I understand why you don't...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

It's not only cultural reasons (although they play an important part) that will prevent Chile from getting out of the so called middle income trap. A shrinking workforce and older population, low productivity, low copper prices and the natural resource curse, lack of R and D, bureaucracy and red ta...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

really your buying that crap? the far left has so many different names, and changes them almost daily, because they shit in their own bed so often they could not get elected if they did not change flags constantly.

Re: Evo resigns, and runs away

Yeah, as far as I know he's a Putin-style usurper: kind of secured national (and indigenous!) interests but ended up power tripping. Now the right-wing folks will sell everything to the US.

The vicious circle of Latin American politics keeps spinning. 😕
