The Chilean Example

Chamberlain, John
April 1982
National Review;4/2/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 6, p356
The article focuses on the economic condition of Chile following the downfall of Augusto Pinochet government. Inflation rate in Chile now stands at some 12 percent. Today the Chilean venture in a free economy is long since out of the blueprint stage. A few problems have appeared lately, but there is nothing that is out of line with the worldwide recession. Chile is considering a return to some sort of parliamentary rule, but Pinochet will retain a veto on political activity for a few years to come.
