- Washington Post: A Dictator’s Double Standard
- Der Diktator Auguste Pinochet starb am 10. Dezember 2006 in Santiago de Chile.
It’s hard not to notice, however, that the evil dictator leaves behind the most successful country in Latin America. In the past 15 years, Chile’s economy has grown at twice the regional average, and its poverty rate has been halved.
It’s leaving behind the developing world, where all of its neighbors remain mired. It also has a vibrant democracy. Earlier this year it elected another socialist president, Michelle Bachelet, who suffered persecution during the Pinochet years.
Who has ruled the country during those 15 Years? Pinochet or the MoneyMonarchy? Who owns the major companies and Banks now?
