Re: The trade wars, they have begun

copper is only like 20% of the gdp now. when copper dropped last time, miners started focusing on other things like gold. chile has been through plenty of low copper price markets, and why there is an economic stabilization fund, which the morons seem to neglect to count when checking if chile has ...

Re: The trade wars, they have begun

Yeah I was reading an article that put Chile in with Turkey and 3 other countries as the highest risk group of 5 for EM fragility. Then it had Argentina in the second highest group. I just couldn't understand why chile was being seen as higher risk/fragility than Argentina. This study came out last ...

Re: Bolivia in court today about Chile and access to the sea

Looks like the case has been decided by the Hague. Decision to be delivered Oct 1 I wonder if they decide in Bolivia's favor, how will Chile respond.i think Chile did not believe in the Hague right to decide this matter, but now it seems they are saying that they follow international law <eating pop...

Re: GUARDIAN: The Chile dictatorship is a warning to the U.S.A.

That line from star wars comes to mind, "So this is how democracy dies, with thunderous applause". What kills it is irrelevant. Wow, the admin quoting Star Wars (and one of the "bad" prequel movies at that). Impressive, most impressive. Bah - That was a good prequel. That phrase he quoted is one of...

Re: CHILENISMOS, MYTHS AND LEGENDS

Guess this is as good a thread as any. Father and son are driving down the road together. Son turns to father, "dad, when i grow-up i want to be a Weón". Dad in shock and a bit concerned, turns to his son and asks, "why is that"? Son says, "because you are always driving around saying things like '...

Re: Choosing an AFP

So to summarize. Chilean social security/AFP is a joke. The money put into it should be kissed goodbye as a throwaway fee for immigration and alternative to US SS The only benefit is Chilean AFP/social security is less than US Social Security so with a totalization agreement it can cut your US tax b...

Re: Bringing spices back to Chile

Food in Chile is so tasteless... Learn how to cook and your life will change forever. Ingredients you get at the ferias here are pretty awesome, and Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Arabic ingredients are available in Santiago. So so true. My first paradigm shift was on cooking steaks...just p...

Re: Irishtimes hatchet job on Chile

I guess my consternation with the irishtimes article was that it painted Chile with such a broad negative brush. Like it could have been about venezuela or argentina. It just seemed like it didn't give Chile the credit it deserves, being the most prosperous and stable nation in south america. Rather...
