Thanks for the links, interesting stuff, maybe we should start this in another thread,? it doesn't really come under the current migration crisis,
You're right, it's way off topic. And I'm not an expert either...but history does seem to repeat itself.

Re: chile's migration crisis

Re the immigration situation - our topic after all - clearly the prior administration made a hash of the process. I don't see much improvement with the current crowd, alas. I believe one of the problems is that there never has been any consensus among the elites about where this country needs to go...

To be bitter and resenting your job or employer must be really depressing, no wonder Chile is at the top of the table for of the vices (drugs /alcohol) and mental health issues such as depression is not exactly great.

Re: Zero Visibility

In Serena some years ago, Movistar stuck up a 50 metre tall cell tower on the northern edge of the town centre, directly in the flight approach path to La Florida airport which is only 4 km away from that point. On very foggy days the top of the tower was in the mist, only barely visible despite its...

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

I went back and looked at that claim from La Tercera : Una cifra no muy halagüeña mostraron las exportaciones en junio, totalizando solo US$ 5.303,56 millones. La cifra supone un retroceso de 15,5% en doce meses y su registro más bajo desde abril de 2017 (US$ 5.048 millones). But checking with Aduan...

Re: corredors and boilerplate leases

Does the corredor work for the landlord? Yes. They often administer the property as well, collecting the rent etc. One of the reasons those contracts are so intimidating is that when it comes down to it, the law is biased in favour of the tenant. Just to evict a non-payer can take a year, especiall...

Re: chile's migration crisis

This article analyses the issue, with an explanation of why Venezuelans prefer moving on to Chile rather than staying in Peru or Colombia. Quienes han seguido el tema, ven cómo se va moviendo la población migrante en busca de mejores oportunidades. De ahí que muchos de los venezolanos que desean hoy...

Re: chile's migration crisis

Meanwhile, on the Chilean sub-Reddit a user investigated an immigration scam running online: Yeah, real quality stuff that "investigation" Is it migrante.com or migrantes.com, the "report" mentions both. . Migrantes Recursos e información.jpg . PRODUCTOS.png What exactly does the scam consist of?

Re: chile's migration crisis

Until Guaidó et al are formally installed in power, Venezuela's overseas assets won't be handed over to anyone. There's also the question of debt run up by the Maduro regime. All those vulture funds in New York will be looking for their money, as happened with Argentina a few years ago.

Re: Jazz in Santiago

Some people must like Jazz, Pat Metheny is paying a visit next year. Typically, the article quoted doesn't give exact dates.....
