Evolution within the Form

Chamberlain, John

National Review;12/24/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 49, p1403
The article offers a look on Chile's improving economic prospects years after General Augusto Pinochet ousted President Salvador Allende in coup d'etat. Improvements in Chile's economy are reflected in various statistics including a decrease in the inflation rate, a growth in farm production and the return of foreign investors. These situation is different during the reign of Allende who increased state ownership through expropriation, precipitated food shortage and increased inflation. With this background the junta under Pinochet promised a program for a return to free enterprise and democratic institutions.
