Re: Where can I find all year Sunniest and Warmest area in Chile.

While the Atacama Desert will certainly be the place with lowest humidity, temperatures can get very low during the night, specially during the winter.

For low-precipitation, warm-all-year areas, you should research about Iquique or Arica, as well as towns around them.

I checked 17-56 and I couldn't find. Are the Median salary numbers per person or per household?

Re: The World Bank manipulated Chile's competitiveness rankings

While I agree with your points, there's still the fact that a certain portion of investors worldwide consider that report to be valid, even tough it is full of crap. Imagine Mr. John Advisor. He's a financial advisor somewhere in NYC and one of his clients asks him for a preliminary report about in ...

Re: The World Bank manipulated Chile's competitiveness rankings

Most "open a company in a day" programs accross the globe are focused in getting micro and small businesses to register themselves, including sole proprietorships. It actually strikes me as odd hearing about a foreign company that thought it would be that simple to open a branch accross. They must'v...

For countries that Chile has the simplified Visa Mercosur agreement, the percentage with a college or technical degree is: Argentina - 27% Bolivia - 8% Brazil - 37% Paraguay - 12% Uruguay - 28% The data pointed by Space Cat is actually quite interesting, as it reinforces the point that Haitian immig...

Re: chile's migration crisis

And the government is whinning because they don't have policital support to push laws, and they're blaming the "mean, evil opositionists who don't want to vote their laws". Yeah, buddy: that's not how politics work.

Re: Homologacion de celulares

I have heard lots of Brazilian tourists and journalists complaining about this. They were completely unaware about this, came to the country on a Friday and left on Monday or Tuesday before getting it processed. It is really counter-intuitive for a country that's the leading force of tourism in Sout...

Re: New Member Here

I think he was talking about 3-year tax holiday on foreign income for newcomers. Yes, I was referring to the 3 years tax holiday (which can be extended to 6 years, subject to analysis). Even tough income tax rates are reasonably low on Chile, there's no reason to not enjoy it, in case it's a possib...
