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.
