Re: Does Chile Property Price Bubble?

You don't know if there was a bubble until it pops. If prices have been steady or rising for a dozen years, it's probably not a bubble. But, don't quote me.

Re: Transferring money

Good Evening All, My wife and I wanted to send the equivalent of 1,600,000 CLP from our USD checking account in the USA to her cousin in Chile to help with tuition. The Peso closed at about 795 to the USD today. XE.com would make the transfer at 765 to the UDS with no fee. They also suggested I cont...

Re: DO NOT CONTACT US ABOUT THE CHILEAN MAIL OR PACKAGES!!!!!

In response to 41south’s question about how these people survive, remember, survival is an instinct. It doesn’t require much thought.
Best Wishes to everyone for a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year.

Re: DO NOT CONTACT US ABOUT THE CHILEAN MAIL OR PACKAGES!!!!!

When I was growing up in NYC, I had a friend who’s phone number was one digit off from a pizza place. When someone called to place an order, he just said “ OK, about a half hour “ and hung up.

Re: Diesel vs Gasoline In Chile

OBD codes are standardized. Just Google the four digit code and find a YouTube repair.
Saves me thousands on my Chevy diesel. Small, easy repairs with accessible parts.

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

A good solid, basic education is important, but it's only part of the equation. There needs to be a job for the graduate. The playing field needs to be leveled so the better candidates get hired. Business owners do not do themselves any favors hiring "The right type of person". The right type of per...

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

Having a consumption tax and an income tax gets you coming and going. While the income tax can be graduated, the consumption tax cannot unless you tie a refundable income tax credit to it.

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

Consumption taxes hit the ones least able to afford it. A poor or lower economic class person spends 100% or more of their salary, much of it subject to IVA. A wealthy person does not spend their full earnings and in effect hides it from IVA.
