Pinochet's Economists: The Chicago School of Economics in Chileby Juan Gabriel Valdes
Pub. Date: 06/05/2008
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book tells the extraordinary story of the Pinochet regime>'s economists, known as the Chicago Boys. Following their training as economists at the University of Chicago, they took advantage of the opportunity afforded them by the 1973 military coup to launch the first radical free market strategy impl emented in a developing country. The ideological strength of their mission and the military authoritarianism of General Pinochet combined to transform an economy that, following the return to democracy, has stabilised and is now seen as a model for Latin America.
