    Duglas, you are totally right. I am Chilean and this is definitely scare mongering, but its part of the huge and very powerful export lobby in Chile. Chile has exported 70.000 million USD last year, more than ever in it's history (even exports more than Argentina, which has 3x more population). Hopfeully the peso will NOT drop again, and this might lead to a more national based industry (which in Chile is very small)
