Cars In Peru. Life In Rural California.

Two for the price of one today!

OK, this first one is in Spanish, but it has some very interesting information for a bearing buyer for Peru.  There are 147 brands of cars in Peru, 91 of which are from China!  12 from Japan and 10 from the USA.  China is very strong because Peru has a free trade agreement with China (as it also does with the USA and Korea).

Japanese brands have 37.6% of the market, Korea 22.9%, China 14.4% and only 11.7% from the USA.

Their automobile association predicts a 20% growth in number of cars sold in 2012 vs. 2011.

De acuerdo con el estudio de la AAP, en el Perú existen 147 marcas de autos, de las cuales 91 de ellas son chinas, 12 japonesas, 10 de Estados Unidos, 6 italianas, 6 peruanas, entre otras.
Las marcas chinas ya se encuentran en tercer lugar de preferencia. Las marcas más vendidas son las de Japón (37.6%), de Korea (22.9%), de China (14.4%) de Estados Unidos (11.7%), entre otras.
La AAP proyectó que durante el 2012 las ventas de vehículos nuevos serán de 180.000 unidades, un incremento de más de 20% respecto al 2011.


Zero Hedge's "Rocky Racoon" sent me this very interesting story from Victor Davis Hanson, a conservative (I guess) guy living in rural California.  Trust me, this is worth reading.  And it ain't pretty!
Best line from the article:  "We need middle-class misdemeanors to pay for the felonies of the underclass."
Should be required reading by politicians and law enforcement?
There isn't much to agree or disagree with since it's just one person's view.

National Review Online


  1. Wow!! That was a real eye opener! I think every single politician from town council right up to the U.S. Senate should have to read and respond to that.

  2. I agree, Ancona, that was chilling. California is falling apart at the seams and I don't have much faith that we have any leaders here to reverse that trend.
