Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Don't big earthquakes tend to come out of the blue - when there had been a built up of tension and no activity or stress released for a while? Who can remember 2010? (I wasn't in Chile then.) There was some guy in a t13 last night saying not necessarily and he rattled off a few where there have bee...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Get ready for big price rises as this shit show drags on. Grain at ports that cant be moved will mean mass slaughter of poultry causing price rises. Essential food prices like fruit and vegetables are already spiking as product cant get through and it hasn't even been a week. Basically all foods wil...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

JaJa, Chile is the perfect training and living from how things can go black-swan south from relative first-world comfort to chaos whether natural or man-made... Surely is. I guess that's what happens when theres only one principal highway too, pretty easy to grind the supply chain to a holt. Party ...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Fortunately we got gas before this started, so have enough for a month or so. Freezer full of food, vegetables in the garden etc. The lines in Llanquihue were extreme too at the servi centros. Just hunkered down and not going out now, was supposed to have a tractor come and do some work today, but h...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Yeah, so How hard is it to provide police/military escorts to supply trucks or convoys needing to get through? Seems obvious enough ... It may seems obvious, I thought about that, but it could lead to all sorts of unintended consequences and collateral damage . Picture this, armed military escorts ...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Getting serious Chile fatigue. Yup, not the only one, I heard someone in an interview on a podcast saying "the countries that will come out of this covid crisis less affected economicly and socially, will be those countries that have a leadership that can bring the country together and unite everyo...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Meanwhile in the South a mass hysteria and panic buying has set in. Shortages of gas cylinders Fuel, diesel and gasoline Fruits and vegetables Supermarket stock Panic buying and an exaggerated analysis of risk of shortages, is leading to far more shortages than the trucker leaders by themselves coul...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I am not saying there will not be massive devastation in the developingworld, there already has been; just that all tragedies are relative.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

To put it another way, catching covid and dying, for most of the world's population ( like 6 billion people) is the least of their concerns. guy's across the developing world are thinking, 'great, I only have a 1% chance of dying of this disease.
