Anything at all (keep it clean) goes here that does not fit in to any of the other forums.

Small country

How many European countries can fit into Chile? That many! On a side note, the Netherlands has almost the same population size but the area of a couple of Chilean regions.

Another thing about the Netherlands is their crazy agricultural productivity, even at small family farms. They manage to grow and export enormous amounts of food, here's a mirror of a now-paywalled article by National Geographic: https://outline.com/7WBqAk

After subtracting Atacama, Patagonia and mountains, Chile still has about 4-5 Netherland-sized areas with much better climates. No need to cry about the closed factories, food is still in high demand.

Here's an article from the latest issue of The Economist about how Chilean cherry industry boomed because of Chinese demand during Chinese New Year that fits the Southern Hemisphere's agricultural season perfectly: https://outline.com/hLw958

Yea, I have found that is a very effective trick for getting around paywall sites recently. When I hit my free article limit, I just kill the browser and reopen it to reset the count.

That will probably work until they start doing browser finger printing.

Yeah, but what happens to that food when Chilean port workers go on strike? At least with copper the price goes up in a port shutdown.

Outline is also an option for many sites: adding outline.com/ in front of any URL fetches the content.

Not like Western European countries don't have strikes. Also, Chile already exports a lot of food and business owners definitely account for strikes.

the EU, and the neatherlands especialy, are so full of it.

If i could get the farming subsidies and hyper protection from free market prices they have, i could make my 2000 square meters of yard profitiable also. the whole farming system in the e.u., has not been viable in as a full free market since wwll ended.

Chile is hardly scratching it's farm productivity potential. When they finaly screw-up the northern hemisphere permanently, all this farm land will go into production.
