Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

Bolsonaro won due to him running against the PT guy in the second run: he would've list in all other scenarios. I'll post a more detailed breakdown later today, as well as some notes about his plans for regional politics. So Bolsanaro is promising to the masses that he won't be accepting any sorts ...

Re: 2004 Chrysler @Santiago- Only 70K miles- Super good Condition- US plate -$2000

ouch. even at $2000, the buyer would need a power of attorney to even get around. rare parts, do they even sell those in chile? who ever buys it has to take it out of the country (thus a power of attorney). they would need to register it in some other country. hope the boarder guys except the power...

You might just want to reconsider driving "Lemmy" back to the states. Saying you have maintenance history and invoices on the service record, but it sounds like a lot of those documents may be from countries like Bolivia, Peru, etc it is basically impossibly to verify. I am not suggesting you would...

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

Earlier this month, I went and looked at the latest numbers from the Social Security Administration, and I discovered that 50 percent of all American workers make less than $30,533 a year.

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

So Piñera y Bolsa will talk about a free trade agreement and a bi-oceanic corridor. That's good, for some reason I thought Brazil was a bigger market for Chile's goods, they come in at 5th taking approx 5 % of Chile's exports.

Why Chile didn't give that Chiloe bridge job to the Chinos? They could have done it way cheaper than the Koreanos could?
Good question, the Chinos want to build the high speed rail link from santiago to San Antonio And Valparaiso.

Re: Why is it so hard to get a job in Chile?
