Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Associating “the left” with wanting a new constitution is weird, as there are many people on both sides who want a new constitution. It’s more the contents and the method of creating a new constitution that is a left/right issue. I think it does actually. The only and I mean only reason that I have...

Re: Visit Santiago Feb.

Just got back from a week there. It was so so hot every single sweltering day. 31c-36c during. It was hard to spend much time at all but under the care of a capable AC unit. Miserable heat for us as southern chile dwellers. Make sure you are prepared for the constant heat, can really cut short plans...

Re: Banking in Chile, or better options?

You have a bank account in singapore? Wow that is impressive if you have never lived there or had a job there. From my research singapore banks require proof of residency such as a lease agreement and proof of employment in singapore such as a job contract...or a multimillion dollar in USD certifica...

Re: Are yu happy with capital controls and cash limits in Chile?

To build on what Tiago said with my own experience. Another AML/KYC trigger I have experienced with sellers of assets and you are paying all physical cash is a boundary as low as $3K USD equivalent in CLP. When there is paperwork, it is not a big deal, it involves showing tier1 identification (valid...

Re: Housing market situation

Has anyone heard of a chilean landlord with a chilean house for rent basing the pricing in US dollars in his mind and then listing it on the market at the current peso conversion. Then as the peso has weakened over the last couple years he asks more pesos (doing the same conversion 2 years later fro...

Seems iran knew it was inevitable...they couldnt decode the black boxes and had to send them to France and then the Ukrainian investigators found evidence of a missile strike.

Re: War with Iran just started

Just was reading that top story.

RocketRichard pretty much nailed it with the incompetence explanation.

Sad so many died, but at least there is not more to the story

Re: War with Iran just started

it is a sad day when the best case scenario for so many people dying is Iranian field incompetence. As bad as that would be if it is true, the alternative is much worse...that another nation took advantage of the telegraphed face saving stunt to frame Iran at the expense of many innocent lives. Prec...

Re: War with Iran just started

Yeah just saw an amateur video of it going down. It was on fire and descending at maybe a 30 or 40 degree angle. Im sure the guy with the camera thought it was a meteor or something. When it hit the ground it was a massive explosion that lit up the night sky If it was not a hostile act then it is on...

Re: Building house in Chile the "gringo" way

That sounds like some really high quality metal. How does the price compare with the overhead of importing it versus using the inferior metal components in chile? It sounds well worth the premium
