    There is surely scope for Argentina, Paraguay, Brasil or Uruguay to easily export beef to Chile.
    Is it cheaper to import it from a nonUnasur country?

    you wouldn't think so but.... Some countries are applying restrictions like Argentina, ( a 15% tax on beef exports and has applied further restrictions since March 2006 to keep domestic prices low.”) This is killing their market and beef quality has really gone down hill. I don't know what the problems may be with the rest of the countries you mentioned.

    Poor Chile, if the USA government tried to do who knows what in our country, imagine what they will do to Chile now that Chile opens its market to US beef products and bioweapons, oops, that's not in the article, sorry.

    Xbarilox, really silly “opinion”. You probably believe it will run worse than what happened with corrupt Menem... why?
    Probably beacause you got the somewhat arrogant idea, we are “copying” of “following” the steps of “liberal” Argentina of the 90ies. But you couldn't be more wrong, mate.
    Chile never has copied the Argentinian way of economy, I would even say that the chilean way of economy started way before Argentina thought of taking a badly applied and corrupt intent of a liberal market.
    I always wonder, why Argentinan's define Menem's rule a “liberal market”, when for my understanding the fixing of argentina currency 1:1 to the dollar is quite the opposite of a liberal economic model. They killed all liberal competition back then.
