Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

Seems that the job market wasn't affected much after all: Instituto Nacional de Estadísticas just announced that the unemployment rate for the end of the year is 6.9%, 0.1% more than in the end of 2018.

I did suggest subcontracting Chile's administration out to the Swiss, or some other upright nation some years ago, as a joke....
