who said the bus in that pic is not regulated? just because it's colorful doesn't meant it isn't.


I think that favela in Panama City doesn't exist anymore, but there are remaining campamentos (Chilean favela) in Santiago.


if it's about skyscrapers, Panamanian ones are taller and more numerous.

you are a troll without knowledge, without travels. I have been in 17 countries in north and south america. you? keyboard warrior?

Reality is that southern cone has an entirely different looks and feel than the rest of south america. The rest of the world agrees with me. Check US Visa Waiver, Canada, EU, Australia, etc for it's visa requirements.

Btw, we can have this conversation in 6 different languages

you are an idiot wasting my time.

No there are no favelas in santiago for decades I heard. I lived there for 6 frigging years I should know.

I have 12 shorter visits to panama city. you cant argue dude
look at the cabs, cars, buildings (remember the skyscrapers in stgo have all expensive materials and must be computer controlled for the earthquakes making them 6-7 times as costly as here in stockholm for example

Cheap concrete buildings in PANAMA:



------

Santiago, CHILE Buildings are all computerized smart earthquake resistant expensive buildings




The cost of the costanera center 300m alone is higher than most of the clustered buildings in the ocean side put together in panama.

When I say Santiago is ahead of Panama, I don't mean by little. The difference is like Sweden and Romania

That's a good point to make.

I talk with people in Argentina who tell me nowadays everything has gone to crap down there, lot of people finding it difficult to get food, lack of jobs, a lot more robberies. What do you say about this?

I say build walls and cut immigration. Also Argentines have always had a roller coaster economy
but, you can't find this in latin america ouside of the southern cone:

ARGENTINA


Even if you take the nicest sector in miraflores, lima, it'd still be obvious it's a developing country.

Look at the old town Santiago vs Panama I posted earlier it pretty much says it all.

Not all Cono Sur is Chile, there is no doubt that Chile is the most developed country in LatAm its also a Mestizo majority country with similar or even less white population than Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela and Cuba (pre-revolution).

Mexico is actually pretty much on par with Argentina on Passport index with Costa Rica not far behind.

It may have been traditionally so that the Conosur (or at least Argentina the most important) was among the most prosperous but with each passing year that continues less-so to be the case.

Finally although I agree that Panama is by and large economically wealthy but not necessarily infrastructure/order/education wealthy. This is probably due to its dramatic growth of 7% yearly and the order should come eventually, sort of like a Taiwan.

The point is that Chile is one thing and Argentina is another and the rise of Mexico especially is showing that the Conosur no longer is the most prosperous region in Latin America and if it does hold some advantages its from past achievements which no longer puts food on the table or provides opportunities for the regular person in Argentina, the "white" country. Whereas the opposite is true for Chile, the "Mestizo" country.

FYI your comparison with Sweden and Romania is flawed because Romania doesn't have a current higher GDP per Capita than Sweden. I would say its more like a Malaysia/Taiwan difference. Or perhaps a Cyprus/Spain difference.

Puerto Madero isn't really that unique.

Santa Fe, Mexico
