Chile has a history of strong private property rights for Chilean citizens and for foreigners. The government may legally expropriate property, including the property of foreign investors, for public or national interests, but property rights and contracts are strongly respected, and expropriation is rare.

Chile is ranked as a high-income economy (first world or developed country) by the World Bank and is considered as South America's most stable and prosperous nation leading Latin American nations in competitiveness, income per capita, globalization, economic freedom, and low perception of corruption according to the United Nations Development Program.

Chile Living Today

3 years ago

Chile Living Today is about what it is like to really live life as Chileans do, and not as an expat living within an expat community. We live, work, travel and play as part of the greater Chilean society. Our travel covers everything from Arica in the north to Chiloe in the south, from the 4000+ miles of Pacific coastline to the interior of the Andes Mountains. Chile has an old and amazing culture, and readers have the opportunity to explore and feel the flavors of Chilean life without having to leave the comforts of home... although visitors are always welcome to Chilean shores!
