Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

While I'm usually not as negative as some and even somewhat overly positive sometimes, my view has seen two big minuses within the past year, the amount of low skilled immigrants many who refused a generous amnesty and who will indeed change the face of Chile and the failure of the Maersk refrigera...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

They're already collecting them in the EU. All the software and digital services have a VAT there. I can imagine they do, everyone else seems to lack the will or capapilities to deal with the big tech firms it seems, you can call the EU bureaucratic or whatever else you like but lately they are the...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

Well the u.s. supream court just ruled the states have to it, so they are probably just going to have suck it up. Yeah, they have been pushing their luck a bit too much over the last few years, making hay while the sun shone I guess, monopolies (which they pretty much are now) are not good, they le...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

I have access to all three recent articles on that site regarding the closure. Maersk official releases stick to the market changed in those three years from under capacity to "heavy overcapacity" and of the problem with supply of local inputs for the production at the Chile plant (this is supposed...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

Chile to bring in a tax on digital platforms, IVA by the sounds of it so expect your Netflix and Spotify etc to go up. Again it's another "problem of our times" many countries seem to be struggling with how to deal with these technologies and it's the consumer that ends up paying eventually, much li...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

With the women’s’ rights I was trying to make a very broad comparison with another struggle that is eventually having some success after a long time. I don’t mean for my analogies to be that close to each other or anything. When I made my ranking of countries ethically (as mentioned at the start of...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

The one thing I don't like about Emol comments though is how they are Facebook log-in and I guess they are not filtered, a lot of it just turns into slagging each other off back and forth, commie, facho zurdo etc, it all gets pretty boring and repetitive really quick. Occasionally there a few good o...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Anyway, back to the Maersk closure. There are many different opinions on here in the comments section, blaming the unions, lack of demand. People asking for reflection on what happened. Guess the full story will never be known, it's all speculation I guess and could have been a combination of many r...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Regarding the topic: I want a megalith in one of the common areas or plazas oriented to the seasons so pagans can worship the equinoxes. Especially like tomorrow which is the first day of winter/longest night of the year/shortest day of the year/when the sun will reverse and begin its southward mar...
