Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Here's a mail I received this am from AFP Cuprum. This project is merely the "hole in the dyke" for the No+AFP movement. Ayer 8 de julio, la Cámara de Diputados aprobó, en general, un proyecto de ley que permitiría a los afiliados el retiro de un 10% de los fondos de la cuenta de ahorro obligatorio ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The only reliable data is the excess death statistic, which was updated by the Financial Times again yesterday: https://www.ft.com/content/a26fbf7e-48f8-11ea-aeb3-955839e06441. This is taken from Chilean government data of course, they give the link at the bottom of the page. Interesting article fr...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

So can they not just start selling food items also or something else that's considered essential? Or is there too much bureaucracy involved? I've seen small companies reinvent themselves elsewhere. Not unless they already have the correct type of license. In the case of food items, that requires ce...

Re: Any push back?

"The authorities of the Valparaíso region cataloged as “isolated” and “insignificant” the events that occurred on Monday afternoon in the upper part of Rodelillo, where a group of people stole 35 boxes of food." . cajas de alimento en Rodelillo.jpg .

Re: America on Fire

From that CNN article: The Trump campaign dismissed the effort last week. Erin Perrine, principal deputy communications director for the Trump campaign, told CNN on Tuesday, "Leftists do this all the time. They think if they sign up for tickets that will leave empty seats. Not the case at all. Alway...

Re: Poll: Should one always trust their "gut feeling"?

My perception is that this time has arrived already and we're right in the middle of an age where knowledge (IE. justified beliefs) are being surpassed by intuition (IE. unjustified beliefs). I would rather act on what there are basis and justification for rather than act on instinct. Don't write t...

I'm not sure why they are so grossly overstaffed. But the fact stands that they are overstaffed. Maybe they are trying to compensate for the fact that the average Chilean isn't too productive...? Haven't you ever seen a grossly overstaffed Chilean store? It's such a common sight that it's most like...

Re: Poll: Should one always trust their "gut feeling"?

I worked in a remote country once on a field crew. When it eventually demobilized, I ended up sharing a hotel room with one of the guys, a pleasant enough individual, who after a couple of days suddenly disappeared. When I asked what had happened to him, it turned out that he was wanted for some rat...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

FWIW the very first cases in our region were health workers who had returned from Brazil.
