Dr. John Cobin is host of the Red Hot Chile radio program and an expert on Chile. Bilingual in Spanish and English, Dr. Cobin has lived in Chile for more than ten of the last eighteen years and is married to a chilena (Pamela). He is a committed Baptist and has seven children. He has visited nearly every place in Chile with more than 500 inhabitants along with much scenery. His blog on Chile has several hundred entries: see escapeamericanow.blogspot.com. He has written many books, two of which have to do with Chile: Life in Chile: A Former American’s Guide for Newcomers andExpatriates to Chile: Topics for Living, which have been very popular sellers among expats and newcomers. Dr. Cobin is well known in Chile on account of his outspoken free market and liberty-oriented views, his letters to the editor (important in Chile) having been published over a thousand times in the last few years in national and regional papers. On account of this, he is the most widely published academic in Chile. He has also been interviewed on Chilean television radio and in newspapers. There is probably no foreigner who knows Chile better than Dr. Cobin. He is a world traveler, too, having visited 68 countries so far (with another 7 planned through 2014), and having spent considerable time in Chile, the United States and Italy. Dr. Cobin is professor of economics and public policy. He received his Ph.D. in public policy and his M.A. in economics from George Mason University. He also holds an M.A. in business economics from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He has published a fair number of academic articles critical of regulation, zoning and abortion, among other things, emphasizing public choice and Austrian economics. He is also President and CEO of Eyzaguirre y Cobin S.A., a Chilean company heading the development of Freedom Orchard (www.FreedomOrchard.com) in Curacaví, Chile, part of which features a sustainable community designed to be attractive to freedom-minded immigrants from “Frist World” countries of the northern hemisphere. Related to that role, Dr. Cobin has a VIP consultancy service which he handles for special clients and visa and residency program mainly run by key members of his team (see www.chile-consulting.cl). In prior years, he worked as a financial advisor and a small business entrepreneur, and was a radio talk show host and columnist.
