Three Decades of Neoliberal Economics in Chile: Achievements, Failures and Dilemmas

Andrés Solimano

No RP2009-37, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: The Chilean development story of the last two to three decades is a mix of successes in the macro, growth, poverty and trade fronts but also of failure in reducing chronic inequality of income and wealth. In addition, the current growth patterns have serious impacts on the environment, natural resources and energy demand. Adverse features of the Chilean development model include urban insecurity and rising crime, pollution, pressure on natural resources, congestion and social stratification in access to education, health and pensions.
