Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

So are you going to boycott UK or not? And if not, why would you boycott China when all they're doing is just trying to make a life for themselves? No, I not going to boycott the UK because of one thing (weapons). China has a longer list of issues than the UK. I think my reasoning for why we should...

Re: The trade wars, they have begun

The apex American company Harley Davidson announced the opening of a plant in Europe to build motor bikes for the EU market, they are laying off in the US and hiring in Europe.. Here is the thing. Even if trumps basic claim is true, and other countries are taking advantage of the u.s.,... Europe is...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

OK - had a quick look about UK selling weapons. The UK is the no 2 weapons exporter after the US. The majority of its sales are to the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is a major one,perhaps their number one client and Yemen has also been there. They have also sold radar tech to China and some stuff to ev...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Wow, Cat, what are you smoking? There was no capitalism in capitalist Russia? Boy, you so need to educate yourself. I said "no real freedom to run a business", not "no capitalism". There's capitalism in Russia nowadays too but as soon as you reach a certain threshold (depends on the region), be pre...

Re: Looking for a place to rent Valpo/Viña/Quilpué/Villa Alemana/Limache

It's way too early - start looking two months prior to your arrival and try to narrow down your desired area and type of housing. Also, I'm not sure you'd be able to find your ideal place at once. So plan on living in a temporary situation here in the fifth region for a few months while looking. The...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Admin, yes, since the fall of the Novgorod Republic there was no real freedom to run a business. Muscovites didn’t respect anybody’s rights (check the “oprichnina” in Wiki) and the authorities of the Russian Empire continued the “do what you want if you have power” trend. Wow, Cat, what are you smo...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

A less badly behaving china on human right, democracy, freedom of speech, environment, and playing by international trade standards, etc, etc, is directly linked to chinas ability to follow through with its development. Are you saying that improved human rights, democracy and freedom of speech Oh, ...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

I have access to all three recent articles on that site regarding the closure. Maersk official releases stick to the market changed in those three years from under capacity to "heavy overcapacity" and of the problem with supply of local inputs for the production at the Chile plant (this is supposed...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

With the women’s’ rights I was trying to make a very broad comparison with another struggle that is eventually having some success after a long time. I don’t mean for my analogies to be that close to each other or anything. When I made my ranking of countries ethically (as mentioned at the start of...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

They're already collecting them in the EU. All the software and digital services have a VAT there. I can imagine they do, everyone else seems to lack the will or capapilities to deal with the big tech firms it seems, you can call the EU bureaucratic or whatever else you like but lately they are the...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Speaking for myself, If I were Chilean, I guess I would be a facho pobre . But I guess I'm just an expat whiner. Whine, whine. When immigrants who have lived in other places and should have some points of reference join the choir of "everything is so bad and getting worse", it's plain harmful. So w...
