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. . Constitucion.jpg . I actually read through the whole of Chile's Con...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Conspiracy theory: the plan was to always appear weak so that the end in in fact will be mano dura. Not like there is anything wrong with that... Gov is shit theory: there is no plan, of course the end result is mano dura see line one. SÍ/Left wins: I'm glad I don't own real estate in Chile. "NO" w...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

well, as I suspected early on, and that suspicion is growing every day, the left and the new constitution does not have nearly as much support as they are making it sound. millions of chileans have done what chileans tend to do about everything, keep their mouth shut. The silent majority voted for ...

I'm actually quite conscious of that, wish I wasn't, but what I've seen in the last three months as destroyed a lot of the looking on the bright side attitude I previously had.

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Well, changing the subject somewhat (actually making it more on topic for this "social crisis" thread I believe), it looks like the anti-looting bill will become law. https://www.emol.com/noticias/Nacional/2020/01/16/973714/Como-votaron-diputados-ley-antisaqueo.html Those clowns can legislate all t...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

By the way, the most expensive actively-managed fund I could find had a 1.5% expense ratio. I wonder how much cocaine is being snorted on that 7.7% (or higher!) that's being charged from Chileans. I remember when I first signed up for the AFP I thought they had made a mistake in charging me the 10 ...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

I am not worried about the monos in the streets. The one that will be particularly interesting, is when the global copper markets realize Chile's mining laws are hard coded in the current constitution (at the insistence of the u.s. goverment, after the allende nationalization), and whomever tries t...

Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

You may be forcing the people who don't care and don't have a clue to vote, and consequently giving more power to those uneducated about politics and the issues. I think it could lead to more populism. It might lead to more left wing success, which I think would be a good thing however. How do you ...

Re: Producto Chileno de exportación

Imagine if these criminals actually put their organisational and planning skills into something honest and useful in Chilean society, the country would run like clockwork . Chile living up to its reputation again as a leader in South America. I see they got three to four years prison, probably two ...
