Re: Who will be our next president?

Exactly, thought "our" means Chile on a Chile forum. By the way, the media is missing the fact that in recent weeks Elizabeth Warren has become the favourite on betting markets to get the nomination.

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

Re: There goes the neighborhood!!! Peru, Ecuador, etc.
