Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

all that said, I am honestly more concerned about the stupidity in the united states right now. It probably means more for Chile's future than this local constitutional dog and pony show. If the global economy crashes, they can put anything they want in a constution, and it is not going to matter o...

Re: Constutional Congress Election

I nominate bikini models and professional comedians to write the constution. If a bunch of unqualified people are going to write the constution, they should at least be entertaining. say, what ever happened to that nice dog that wondered on to the floor of congress last year? Him too. Although he m...

Re: Constutional Congress Election

SO WHY THE HELL DID YOU VOTE FOR IT???? Maybe the commenters in on your local paper's website have a conservative leaning? After all it is a web poll :lol: Regardless, the next few years are going to provide the journalists plenty of material to contort into clickbait. Lol, yeah plenty of clickbait...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

It is not inevitable that Chile will follow the same path because: 1 If they learn and study the same path as Europe, learning from Europe's mistakes, they can already do better. 2 Chile is not reopening quickly. We are not seeing packed bars and restaurants like in the UK. I think they need to be ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

woops, 100,000 covid cases a day, before election day. u.s. just recorded 99,000 cases on Friday. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/10/31/us-reports-record-99321-new-covid-cases-as-scientists-warn-of-difficult-winter-.html Do we have any reason to believe Chile will not be in the exact same situation a...

Re: Building house in Chile the "gringo" way

I knew I was in trouble when I walked into the kitchen and saw the maestro's assistant trying to hammer a screw into the wall. Yes, it really is that bad. And to get a good maestro, you have to wait months, years because they are booked. Lol, screw with a hammer that sounds like a classic. I had al...

Re: The Vote to Write a New Constution for Chile

So unsurprisingly a lot more young people voted and a lot less older people. Still only about half a million more overall than the second round of 2017 pres elections. The extra numbers were made up of about a million more young 20 to 29 year olds and about half a millions less elderly. Suppose the ...

Re: The Vote to Write a New Constution for Chile

well markets seem to be taking it in stride. ipsa is down a bit but hardly a crash as some predicted. probably more tuned in to what is hoing on in the glibal markets and the u.s. stimulus talks than the constutional vote. Dollar has actually gone down to 775 too You right, about global situation. ...

Re: The Vote to Write a New Constution for Chile

Get ready for the huge hangover now as everyone realizes shit hasn't changed and won't in a hurry. The country still faces all the same issues, a message may have been sent to the political class, but they are not the only ones that need to change, things will not magically change in the country/so...
