Re: electric vehicles in chile

I asked him for his source on the charging points all over Chile in this year, and he shared this tweet from Ministry of Energy Energía ‏Verified account @MinEnergia ¡Este año, alcanzaremos las 150 electrolineras a lo largo de todo el país! Sigamos sumando #MásElectromovilidad para Chile https://twi...

Re: electric vehicles in chile

Thanks for sharing this. Good news. The real news here is that you can now drive from Santiago to Concepcion with an electric car, which wasn't possible before. The other noteworthy thing is that these are fast chargers. 30 minutes or so. There is one place on the drive with 98km between charging p...

Re: electric vehicles in chile

Someone has now driven from Santiago area to Concepcion and back with an electric car. Link below has the story in a series of mini video blogs at each stop that might take up to an hour or so to watch all of them. https://clubautoselectricos.blogspot.com/2019/02/electrolineras-de-carretera-febrero-...

Re: chip your animals!!!

What they could do is go around fining about 100 people, and making videos of all the people they caught, and putting them on facebook and TV. Like a sustained campaign of repeatedly doing it and videoing every one and releasing them separately. Doing it across the country in all separate locations....

Re: Expat leaving debts in Chile

here is no good reason to attach millions of pesos of credit to basic savings or checking accounts. Agreed. But I think we shouldn't use the banks behavior as a justification not to pay. One bad thing does not justify another, and also unpaid debts are as likely to hurt the average investor and use...

Re: Expat leaving debts in Chile

no morals involved ??? just because it's factored in it's OK?? who do you think really pays for the lost debt. all the other banking customers. people who rip off the banks are ripping off every other customer. probably you all get 1% interest on your account instead of 1.2%. that 0.2% is to pay for...

Re: China Growth Has Stopped

The thing I've read about growth of "only" 5 percent in China vs say 10 percent 10 years ago, is now that in actual monetary terms 5 percent today is actually more as its from a much much bigger economy than the 10 percent a decade ago, so while in percentage terms its smaller it's not the same, no...

Re: China Growth Has Stopped

I talk to Chinese companies...... 2018 was clearly a year of less growth .......I'll take a punt that peso will get a bit weaker from here, while the copper price will drop a little more in 2019. More and more news has come out confirming what I said about a China slowdown https://www.bbc.com/news/...

Re: Transferring money

So is Schwab charging the middle rate? I assume this is a North American card provider, I don't think they are available in the UK where I'm from, so I doubt I'd be able to get the card.

Re: Transferring money

I worked out the average of all my Transferwise transactions for 2018 was that I paid 1.86%. I typically transfer just under a million pesos each time, sometimes a few hundreds thousand. There is a fixed fee and then a % so the total % will be rubbish for small transactions. I don't know a better wa...

Re: Super Blood Wolf Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 20/21st

Very unlikely scientifically speaking that there is a relationship between lunar eclipses and earthquakes. Actually scientists are divided on this and some suspect there is a link but they dont have evidence, the mass of water moved by the tides maybe enough to creaste pressure and strains , the st...
