Author Info

  • Solimano, Andres

Abstract

This article reviews various experiences with stabilization. It first examines stabilization programs in the context of hyperinflation--looking at the experiences of Austria and Germany in the early 1920s and Bolivia in 1985--and then reviews and interprets the results of orthodox stabilization plans (applied in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay during the mid-1970s and early 1980s) and those of heterodox programs (the austral plan in Argentina and the cruzado plan in Brazil, with a glance at the Mexican and Israeli experiences). The paper concludes with a discussion of conceptual issues and implications for the design of stabilization policies. Copyright 1990 by Oxford University Press.
