Description
Sound recordings and transcripts of interviews, and associated material, relating to free market policies in Chile and elsewhere in Latin America, and to the influence of economists associated with the University of Chicago in instituting them. Interviews conducted by Tobias Switzer and William E. Ratliff. Those interviewed include Rolf Lüders Schwarzenberg, Sergio de Castro, Martín Costabal Llona, Alvaro Donoso, Ernesto Fontaine, Gonzalo Vial Correa, Miguel Schweitzer, Roberto Kelly, Domingo Cavallo and Hernán Cubillos Sallato.
Background
The first truly methodical though flexible implementation of market reforms in the mid-twentieth century was by the Chicago Boys in Chile. This cadre of market-oriented economists was trained chiefly at the University of Chicago (UC); they sprang to public attention after the military coup that ousted Socialist president Salvador Allende in September 1973.
