I was born in Argentina, but I grew up in Chile. My whole family (on my dad's side) lives there (except my sister who lives in San Francisco).
We've been friends with the Piñera Morel family since forever. I went to school with two of their kids.
The thing that is really important here is that Piñera is already filthy rich. He's not going to take bribes or engage in cronyism to improve his situation. He doesn't need it.
As the business climate over there begins to get better after a long drought of socialist administrations (things under the previous president, Michelle Bachelet, was pretty bad) I'm starting to think I want to go back. Almost 20 years! I was down there over the holidays and spent some time talking to friends and cousins about business opportunities. I don't want to end up working for my grandfather's Evil Conglomerate but I think I can do something on my own with the capital I have. We'll see. In the meantime, I'm just happy for Chile.
