Synopsis : Articulate and provocative, Richardo Ffrench-Davis offers the most comprehensive and timely assessment available of Chilean economic reform, from the military dictatorship of Pinochet in the 1970s up to the "reforms of reforms" made by the democratic governments in the 1990s.
Written in accessible and readable prose, "Economic Reforms in Chile" begins with an overview of the Chilean economy during the last fifty years. This historical time frame is divided into three periods of economic reform. The first period covers the Pinochet regime, during which the more orthodox neoliberalism was implemented. The second period includes the Pinochet dictatorship, during which economic policy shifted toward pragmatism, particularly in the areas of trade and finance; it also includes the crisis of 1982 and its effects. The third period begins in 1990 with the return to democratic elections and the significant reforms to prior reforms. This section also examines the search for growth-with-equity, success in investment and growth performance, macroeconomic sustainability, and the reduction of poverty. Ffrench-Davis addresses several "paradoxes," or results that defy the expectations of policymakers, in order to analyze the significance of comprehensive macroeconomic equilibrium and its implications for sustainable stability, growth, and equity.
"Economic Reforms in Chile" will be of interest to economists, political scientists, and policymakers involved with the economies of emerging and developing countries.

Synopsis:
Building on the impressive first edition, this new edition has been fully revised and updated to analyse and compare the market reforms implemented in Chile since the deadly coup of 1973. It examines the intense reforms that were launched under the dictatorship of general Pinochet and summarizes the three democratic governments of Presidents Aylwin, Frei Ruiz-Tagle, Lagos, and largely covers the mandate of President Michelle Bachelet.

Ricardo Ffrench-Davis challenges the widespread theory that there is only one successful Chilean economic model, through in-depth analysis he demonstrates that since 1973 there were several sub-periods of notably diverse economic and social outcomes. These models are discussed throughout the book, highlighting the trends of Chile's economic growth during the past 50 years, revealing the relevant successes and failures of the Chilean economy.

Economic Reforms in Chile has been revised and expanded to include new chapters on exports and growth and on reforms and policies since the contagion of the Asian crisis, in 1998. This book is essential reading for all interested in macroeconomics, trade, international finance and development.
