The authors argue that it was a combination of misjudgments, including important policy errors, that led to the collapse of the Chilean economy.

Monetarism and Liberalization clearly explains the successes and problems of free-market policy in Chile, implemented in 1973 by the Pinochet regime under the guidance of economists trained at the University Of Chicago. The authors argue that it was a combination of misjudgments, including important policy errors, that led to the collapse of the Chilean economy in 1982-83. A new Afterword concludes that the Chilean market-oriented reforms have been largely successful and analyzes the probable fate of free-market economics under democratic rule in Chile.About the Author:
Sebastian Edwards is associate professor of economics at the University of California, Los Angeles. Alejandra Cox Edwards is assistant professor at California State University, Long Beach.
