The Chilean solution:
Enfatizó que el afectado no puede maltratar o llegar a quitarle la vida al perro que atacó. "Cuando sucede eso, se inician otra investigación, por el maltrato del perro. Lo más probable es que haya que pagar una indemnización y una multa", adujo.
Jajaja, as they say here. Another example of buenismo in action.

yea, there has been a bunch of bitching among farmers about the conflict of laws.

the old crusty hunting laws already designate farrow dogs as an invasive species that can be hunted without limit.

then you have the new law regarding mistreatment of animals.

at the end of the day, I think it is a none-issue. any animal, on your property, in the process of doing damage, is fair game.

strangly I had the reverse problem a few years ago. frigen neighbor's cows got loose came in my property. cows are a curious, even if a relatively stupid animal, and they like to test things with their mouth. cow bit and crushed the fender on my new truck. that was besides damage to gates and landscraping in their brief visit.

luckily for that cow, i did not go with my first instinct to just shoot sucker. it occurred to me that dead cow would probably spend two months where it fell, while I argued with neighbor to come get it. either that or i spend two days digging a grave. i use to live on farms. a full grown dead cow or horse is a lot of work to get rid of.

nieghbor finally put in an electric fence. now me and the cows get along fine.

a little more back on topic, and sometimes a double post is needed as this means more to this thread regarding inequality and wealth than over on the housing thread:

well, besides the interest rate cut, it seems the stimulus package is moving ahead full throttle. 40,000 houses planned, 30,000 immediately, of which 15,000 houses for the south of chile.

https://www.df.cl/noticias/empresas/con ... 01234.html

they did the los lagos announcement the other day, and little frutillar, is getting 350 of these houses. the mayor estimates it will house about a 1,000 people, or another way to put it, about 10% of the town is getting a new house.

I might add, i would guess about 30% of the town's population or more already has a government built or subsidized house.

Plus the 5 billion they on railway infrastructure announced the other day. Which is a good move imo.
Also, say what you like about Lagos but he had vision with the careterra infrastructure they developed . Chile has an awesome highway system and getting better, I compare that to NZ where they have been trying to finish a highway (like the Ruta 5 sur) that is 100km long, since 1996.

Re: pork, its's true and anyone who does their own shopping saw the skyrocket in Chile pork prices weeks ago. It is now better to buy Chile beef on offer than buy Chile pork at inflated prices. Now the the Chile beef cartel asses wants to sell Chile beef to the future Empire, again screwing the Chile consumer. Saw this already when lamb became unpurchaseable for the same reasons nearly two years ago.
About 1/6 of the world's pork supply has been wiped out. Swine flu is no joke.

China is buying from whoever is selling due to its own supply being lowered by 1/3.

Spoke with a fertilizer rep yesterday, who also sources goods for clients in Santiago. Apparantly the Chinese are buying everything they can get their hands on at the moment, especially proteins, she had a call yesterday from a client to see if she could provide 100 shipping containers of beef, per month. That's just one client.
Someone trying to buy 20% of Chile's pork exports in one phone call out of Shanghai? Jaja, only in China.

here is one of those fun budgets showing costs of living in the united states, that totally blows holes in the u.s. goverment definition of "middle" class and "poverty".

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/this- ... al-finance

but the more relevant point to this thread, is with a little bit of work, you could do a pretty quick comparison with chile by filling in the blanks of typical prices and quality of living/ equivalent products of services to get some real grasp on the purchasing parity, mas o menos, of what would qualify as "middle" class between the two countries.

It was beef, not pork. That's the issue, there is not enough pork to supply Chinese consumers, that's why they are turning to other proteins , like beef. They are buying up whatever they can at cattle auctions through their agents and live shipments of cattle continue from many countries up to China. Which obviously has flow on or unintended (or intended) consequences for other markets .

That table is bullsh!t. $400 every month on new clothes at Old Navy? Budgeting for the cost of a new playpen for the baby every month? I can’t even begin to take the writer seriously if he thinks $350k/yr makes it hard to make ends meet.
