Yes, Macri out, Fernandez in... at least they're talking to each other this time around.

Fernandez' victory was much narrower than expected, the margin closed substantially since August, and he lost every major population centre except the province of Buenos Aires, which apparently has about 16 million people and effectively gifted him the election. We'll see what happens next.

Well, at least Argentina will remain a cheap destination for Chilleans to go on holidays or large weekend getaways.

the little wankers on the streets of Santiago like to puke on and on about how corrupt Chile is.

They have not got a clue what real corruption is like in latin America; especially in Argentina.

Chile's Enap, has filed criminal complaint against Argentina's YPF for fraud, after a forensic audit uncovered massive corruption in contracts for gas to Chile. among others, guess who is at the top of the pyramid?

Argentina's vice president elect.

It seems there were 6 shell companies involved, plus some of her family were "executives" paid millions of dollars to do nothing.

That is just one little gas contract. what do you think the rest of the country looks like under the hood?

I'd say most have a clue but they compare the country to Western Europe and OECD members, not to the Latin American basket cases.

Have you forgotten Odebrecht?
Almost a third of Brazil's government ministers who served under former president, Michel Temer, have faced investigation, including his foreign minister and chief of staff. The predecessor of current far-right President Jair Bolsonaro, who was arrested and released in a separate corruption case last month, is facing investigation in relation to Odebrecht.

And there in lies Chiles major problem, comparing themselves to Western Europe and OECD members, this is definitely Chiles neighborhood, the last month has shown this is the neighborhood where the country firmly belongs. These Latin American basket cases , economically speaking, are who Chile should compare themselves with , not friggin Western Europe . It's not only the physical distance that separates Chile from Western Europe.

I don't see any cultural reasons that prevent Chile getting on the level of pre-crisis Spain. The last month has shown to me that there's a collective will to make serious system adjustments and this will is what can get the country out of the middle-income trap.

It's not only cultural reasons (although they play an important part) that will prevent Chile from getting out of the so called middle income trap. A shrinking workforce and older population, low productivity, copper prices and the natural resource curse, lack of R and D, bureaucracy and red tape, even climate change etc , or will all these issues go away now after what's happened?
Is going to take a lot more than Willing the country into a more prosperous one, especially now the country will essentially loose the next few years of development getting out of this mess and the mess to come with the constitution. Not to mention the current state of the rest of the world and their problems, system adjustments wont be enough either in an export orientated conomy dependent on the healthy state of other economies and political decisions of the big boys.
