What is the best way to send you the info? I assume we will lay out our final goals, risk level and a fairly comprehensive outline of who we are to see where we might best fit.admin wrote:Fascinating thing is that much of the "expert advice" I know these sorts of "experts" are either selling now or have sold in the past, comes directly from our sites.

You are paying them for what we give away for free.
We charge when we start doing things for people in particular cases.
I'm also curious if there is anything that we could help others with by being so near the consulate here in DC?

Ahh Seabee, that is the best kind ! Those that can spot BS and call it for what it is are the kind of people I like to associate with. I owe Patagoniax a cold one. Those with little patience for ignorance and no patience for stupidity are the ones I wish more would emulate. The US would not be in the position it is in had we cut the BS years ago and told all the pampered, greedy, spoiled, arrogant, wasteful, self-serving fools that the punch bowl was empty and it was time to stand on our own two feet again.Seabee wrote:Tough crowd, isn't Steve?
Instead we borrowed our prosperity feeling that the rest of the world owed us. Time to pay the piper.
We live so isolated here from the real world. I didn't see any of it until I spent 7 months during 2003 in Eastern Europe and lived with the rest of the world. Funny thing not having 2 cars in the drive and cable in every room and yet the citizenry still being quite content and seemingly happy. Then to return home and realize the US is basically a very pissed off unhappy group of people. And why? Crap, we have everything in life handed to us then complain to the waiter because our water spilled. Changes they are acoming, just hope it isn't one of those Protestantclismic awakenings....

Now again.. I mean, the picture of the Baguales.
Who on earth do you call, when you just can't stop crying?..

Then once they're done dissolving the ministry of education they'll get a quorum in parliament to revise the constitution and privatize Codelco.
Being from South Western Ohio, I have seen the sustainable communities created by the Amish. In modern times, even they integrate (somewhat) and depend (to a minor level) on the rest of society. These "gult gulches", are they supposed to be completely self-sustaining? Will they make their own golf balls and distill their own malt? If they really close the doors, won't this lead to in-breeding?eeuunikkeiexpat wrote:.There is talk of forming some kind of "Galt's Gulch" in Chile. Having been involved in Laissez Faire City, Costa Rica (circa. 2000-2002) and a watcher of other so-called English speaking "freedom" communities and their (failed, if not scam filled) histories, this immediately drew my attention.
At least the Amish make outstanding furniture.

The people the wine, fresh fruit and veggies, great seafood, cheap real estate and the greatest diversity of climates in any single country and if climate change types are right the deserts of the north should get regular rain in 10-20 years time.
Now back to Canada vs Russia Gold medal Junior Hockey Championship game from the terrace, great Sav Blanc at hand. Oh USA got the Bronze.
Let me count the ways it could turn out good... I'll get back to ya.eeuunikkeiexpat wrote:.I just hope these non-integrated into Chile newbie yahoos don't give the rest of us who have been here for years a bad name.
Maybe a bunch of them would be bankers and mortgage specialists and could bring Chile into the "new" 21st century financial practices? Oh wait, they're the rich idiot bastards that stole every freakin penny and crashed the system where they now want to run from.... Never mind. I'll get back to ya.
Isn't that what it is all about, or at least SHOULD be all about? New country, new people, new friends, new life? Learn how to fit in, learn what you can contribute, learn how to live with what you apparently liked enough about the place to relocate there? Not making it like what you left, because what you left was apparently bad enough to leave.eeuunikkeiexpat wrote:. the many kinks patiently worked out and the relations with the local community carefully nurtured and solidified.
Interesting thought, if a certain writer of a certain expat website were to tell the hundreds of his followers about this site, he could really help people learn about the true Chile and how to best relocate. Oh yeah, then his followers would find they wouldn't need to send their cash to him anymore for all this "inside" "expert" advice. So, truth must be it is all about raking in the dough from the suckers that are looking for the easy answer, the easy way out, and it is not about actually helping people. And this is what they want to transplant to whatever country they decide they can drop in to and "fix"? No thanks.
