Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

It will be interesting to see if government keeps track of these deaths. "Here’s the paragraph from Thomas’ book that applies: “According to one study a 1 percent increase in the unemployment rate will be associated with 37,000 deaths including 20,000 heart attacks, 920 suicides, 650 homicides, 4,00...

Re: America on Fire

Anyone paying attention to Seattle? The last time I paid attention to an armed group staking claim to territory owned by the slave masters, things didn't end well. Well, to be honest all land is owned by the slave masters, but that's getting into the details.

I hope you're not losing your job in a few weeks......I lost mine at the close of March but I am fortunate to have independent income.....no idea where we would be without it.
Brother I am sorry. That really stinks.

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

I'm not taking any risks until after there's either a vaccine or some kind of cure, but it's enticing nonetheless. Well, the vaccine will be the cure. This statement is 100% correct. At least 1/3rd of the world population will never again feel comfortable flying, being in a crowded stadium, shoppin...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Hit a checkpoint between villarrica and pucon on the way to caburgua and they were stopping every single car heading that way and checking license plate registrations in real time. Not the papers...presumably for virus avoidance rather using a tablet with a 4g dongle and searching a db. Every singl...

Re: America on Fire

Looks like an easy way to over double your money. I want an option to hedge my bets where Biden is forced out of the race and Michelle Obama takes his place.

Re: America on Fire

trump's sociapathic issues finally had a positive outcome. He just lost the election all by himself: https://abcnews.go.com/amp/Politics/trump-defunding-dismantling-disbanding-police/story?id=71138273 because, if he did not, he just started a civil war. I don't see any way Trump loses in November. ...

Re: America on Fire

I am also waiting to see in the next few weeks, if a massive spike in u.s. cases related to the protests comes to pass, and how chileans react to that. They might loose their interests on protesting altogether. What about a massive spike in Canadian cases? We're still in the middle of the worst pan...

Re: America on Fire

No doubt. One day the hoards of protesters in Chile will lose their fear of cooties and get back to the streets. Only this time they'll be a little poorer, a little hungrier and for a lot of them they'll have a lot more time on their hands. Maybe all the protests in Murica will serve as a catalyst.

Re: America on Fire

As for the campo vs. city, I am amazed by the long waiting list of gringos (and other foriegners) I got right now that are desperately trying to get in to Chile. Wow things turned around quick (or people have short memories). Every gringo I talked to in Chile just a handful of months ago was at the...
