Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

uruguay, often gets great ranking at the top of the various development indexs along side chile. it is all an illusion. if argentina or brazil ever got a handle on their corruption, or uruguay ever cracked down on the money laundering, the economy would colapse. Yeh, every sizeable real estate tran...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

Here's an interesting article this morning, I think its kind of saying Bolsanaro could damage Piñeras aspirations as a leader in Latin America, if he starts going too hardcore, he will damage Piñeras reputation if Piñera cuddles up to him too much, but then if Bolsanaro strengthens Brazil and their...

Re: Paradigm Shift

Yea, I had the thought to invest in companies selling the shovels, not the gold mines. The grow equipment is probably where the money is at. In any case, I am sure Chilean politicians will be watching. Might help move along the legalization law in congress, if things work out better in Canada. Gold...

Re: Paradigm Shift

You can grow 4 plants per adult.......there is a big market for micro hydroponic gear and seeds (some seeds are $25 each, that's crazy) .......the plants must be indoors and out of site from the outside of the property..... The companies entering the grow business go through a lot of hoops to meet t...

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

O.k., so still looking at the bullshit stats, the United States has got to be the most bullshit of the bullshit international stats. The only reason I can come up with for their consistent high ranking, is they provide funding to a lot of these international organization that compile the stats. It ...

Re: Waiting for permanencia response - updates?

The nice agent told you what you wanted to hear, if you never mentioned going to Argieland the agent would not have said " good idea, go to Argieland" many miscommunications are not lies but just telling someone what they want to hear........

Re: Waiting for permanencia response - updates?

An update: I went to the post office to verify that my solicitation for permanencia was delivered. Check. Next I went to the PDI to ask what course of action would be best. The woman I spoke with said my plan to go to Mendoza was good. She stressed that I must use my passport to exit Chile, and not...
