About this book


In 1990, after almost 17 years of military rule, Chile became the only Latin American country where a democratic regime coexists with free market policies which actually work. The book explores this paradox, and it examines the prospects for future economic growth with income redistribution under free market rules and democratic politics. The author examines amongst other things, short-term policymaking, education, health, the labour market, women, the middle sectors, privatisation, market imperfections, the state, non-government organisations, external trade, the financial sector and the external debt.
