Re: Expat leaving debts in Chile

I am not sure how you plan to pay back this debt (plus whatever interest accrues) and would be interested to know how this would work. OP said he would sell a property in home country and use proceeds to pay off the debt, just not at once. You're free to interpret that however you want, Gloria. Int...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

I just don't get how you can be down to your last 10,000 while owning a 5 million a car and a 500k smart phone, and then feel the need to spend that last 10,000 immediately on something that seems fairly trivial like a day out to the beach.

Re: electric vehicles in chile

Long haul planes that don't cause global warming just isn't going to happen for a very, very long time as covered in George Monbiot's book Heat and other sources.

Re: chile real estate property taxes can be paid online now.

Well, now it makes sense. It was a problem that needed solved for folks that do not have another way to pay. And Multicaja stands to make a decent buck/luca off of the solution. I'd rather just pay the multa for paying late and when I can load up my cuenta vista with some cash again. The late fee/in...

Re: A Near Miss
