"The Chilean economy: Neo-liberalism, Imperialism and the Poor"
Talk given by Chilean economist Orlando Caputo
Over the last 30 years, since Pinochet dictatorship, Chile has been subjected to
all sorts of economic experiments by the gang of "Chicago Boys" (economics students
from that university) that ruled the country hand in hand with the military. It
became an actual laboratory for neo-liberal policies. These policies have affected
the standard of life of the working class dramatically, transforming the country to
one of the most unequal in the whole world (it's now the 7th worst).
In this process the hand of US imperialism hasn't been absent, having an active
role in shaping our country into the interest of an ever narrower local ruling
class, and of the US big businesses who rule the fruit business, the copper
mines and many other resources of a primary-exporting economy.

The Chilean example becomes a paradigm for the New World Order. The process of
impoverishment of the Chilean working class and the progressive reduction in
the limits of democracy are global trends.

Meeting: WSM office -5 Merrion Row (off St Stephen's Green), ring the "Latin
American Solidarity Centre" bell.

Speaker:
Orlando Caputo Leiva, Chilean Economist, currently an academic in UNAM
(Autonomous National University of Mexico), member of CLACSO (Latin American
Council for Social Sciences) and ex-member of CODELCO council (Chilean National
Copper Mining Company) under the Unidad Popular Government (1970-1973).

Tuesday, 23rd November, 8pm

Hosted by the Workers Solidarity Movement
