This is the first book to provide a comprehensive analysis of three decades of neoliberal reforms in Chile. Chile is often described as a model of neoliberal development policy. Marcus Taylor shows that the reality is very different. Examining the contradictions of neoliberal reform, he shows how it has created a society that is deeply ridden with inequality. Taylor examines the consequences of Pinochet's policies. He shows why the tensions that arose from social inequality led to the emergence of a Third Way neoliberalism in the post-dictatorship period. Taylor argues that neoliberalism has failed to transform social relationships and institutions. This failure has huge consequences for popular movements for social change in Latin America during a time of renewed political upheaval. The book will be of interest to anyone studying the problems of neoliberal reform across the developing world.
