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

Anyway, back to the Maersk closure. There are many different opinions on here in the comments section, blaming the unions, lack of demand. People asking for reflection on what happened. Guess the full story will never be known, it's all speculation I guess and could have been a combination of many ...

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

Seen mention that back before they built it, there was a lot of doubts inside the company regarding how viable it was. Do you remember where you saw that? I have not seen any reference to any doubts. They basically built that, just as asian countries started flooding the market with cheap container...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

I was thinking if i had to rank say top 5 to 10 latin american countries to invest in (investment, not living), it would be: 4. Mexico (1,100 politicians assainated this year, but size and proximity to the u.s. will always keep mexicis economy growing) You are worried about the politicians?? Outsid...

Re: The trade wars, they have begun

I just bought two bricks of French butter (President) in Lider at 500 pesos cheaper than local Soprole, and had to throw it away because of the disgusting smell that came off of it when I put it on the frying pan. Just in case .... Why does my mantequilla de campo smell like blue cheese? SENSORY EV...

No. But the text didn't make that clear.
Nah. It does still say 'Chile'. I wonder if somebody will eventually notice the mistake.

I was wondering why nobody in the forum had mentioned the new Chilean plants. :)

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

Los factores que gatillaron la medida Al analizar en detalle cada uno de los factores que llevaron a esta drástica decisión, la firma mencionó la instalación de otras tres fábricas en Chile, llegando a siete en seis años, lo que elevó la producción de contenedores a nivel global. https://www.df.cl/...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Ok cool , good chat, maybe writing it down for me is not conducive to what I was trying to say, I get some of what you are saying, but to be honest other parts not so much , so probably just leave it there aye? Better to do it over a BBQ. I never presented myself as pretending anything and clearly ...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Tried that before I posted and the link didn't open for me. Regardless, it's not generally used in professional real estate sales and I've never come across it. Perhaps occasionally used by the more bogan agents who might be found in Queensland. Some'll try anything to flog property and many a buye...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Sorry, but I'm still not getting what you meant when you said "What I meant by calling the 'moral squad' was that neither you, nor the other people there did anything different. You and them went around the business of looking at the properties. Just as you did, so did they. " I don't know what oth...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Perhaps read your source again Frozen North. It says "attractive agents", it's not gender specific. In the Aust. context I read "attractive agents" as well dressed better than average looking licenced real estate salespersons, male or female. Not some tarted up scantily clad eye candy office decora...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

A cultural quirk. In Western cultures it's taken as a given in the real estate industry that the wife will in most cases have the final say on whether to buy this property or that so having "skimpys" at a property expo is a huge no no. It seems that using young women is quite well accepted for ever...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Anyway didnt really mean to hijack my own thread with my opinions. Sorry, too late. :) Yeah ok my mistake if I made it sound particular to Chile . I guess it wasn't the scantily clad young women in particular, it was more the reflection on Chilean society, where the majority of people don't even re...
