Time is ticking away, excuses are getting tired about how the opposition screwed the economy, future presidential hopefuls are already making noises. Time for Piñera to act a bit more and he hasnt got much longer.Britkid wrote: ↑Sun Jun 02, 2019 7:35 pmI agree - a lot of nice words but not much concrete promises and details. Let's give a little time for some concrete plans to emerge, but not much time. There is a lot of development planned, parks, trains etc, but no tax rises I don't think (I seem to recall this government was even cutting taxes) so not sure how they are paying for it.
Wasn't too impressed by the talk of airport development and then 5 minutes later talk of Chile being climate neutral. Doesn't really add up. I think there is supposed to be a more detailed climate change plan coming out soon. I'll remain skeptical until I see it.
I thought his talk of more tramites being available to do online was good.
I did get the sense in the talk once again that Chile is a stable functioning democracy, much closer to the best countries than the worst.
Yeah there's a more detailed climate plan coming out in October I read the other day.
Triming the number politicians etc just sounds like populism, its insignificant and minor in the scale of fiscal spending but it makes headlines.
Instead of reducing the numbers I'd like politicos to do eithics or civics courses and and maybe a bit of philosophy and some other training to prepare them for political life.
Some things were ok, but it's still Piñera and as I said the other day, mediocre nothing transformational.
