Re: AFP: Opening the black box

If the AFPs were so good, How come the military made sure they did not join them? Chilean military that implemented the new AFP system excluded themselves from it keeping obtaining their pensions from the Caja de Previsión de la Defensa Nacional.

Re: AFP: Opening the black box

Last year I’ve spent two weeks for the full time research of our investment plans. And I consider my research skills significantly above average. Now add the lack of good information about this in Spanish and the task is close to impossible for an average citizen. To prevent populism, we need a dec...

Re: AFP: Opening the black box

it is goverment managed, just less managed than most. The goverment makes the rules and mandates the payment in to it. That is pretty goverment managed. I believe that the correct term is *regulated*, not 'managed'. The AFPs operate within regulations created by the government; just like many other...

Re: Irishtimes hatchet job on Chile

Isn't a more mature and useful philosophy to understand reality and accept it and respond according to your values, rather than to only ask "why"? "When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why they are poor, they call me a communist." Dom Hélder Pessoa Câmara (1909 – 1999) was...

Re: Chile Peso 2018, Starts at 605.50

Peso seems to be weakening lately (I don't know why). A similar comment was made this morning in the radio regarding the Canadian dollar. I found an article that tries to explain it. May be there are explanations out there on what affects the movement of the Chilean peso. Here’s Why the Relationshi...
