Re: electric vehicles in chile

It’s expensive, gives the idea that you are helping the environment, and requires no commitment/changes other than money . And simultaneously increases pollution (especially w...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Brazil central bank denies it, but Bolsonario was supposedly talking about one currency for the whole continent. Think it through from Bolsonaro/Bachelet/whoever elitist's point of view.
