Crecimiento y Progreso Social en Chile

Author

Abstract

Este trabajo describe la evolución reciente de los principales indicadores económicos para Chile y las reformas implementadas que largamente explican el desarrollo del país en las décadas recientes. Se muestra que Chile, de acuerdo a su crecimiento y situación social, puede clasificarse como un país con un alto crecimiento (para el concierto Latinoamericano), con fuerte impacto en reducir la pobreza y con nulo impacto en crear una sociedad más igualitaria. A pesar de esto último, el país ha avanzado en los últimos quince años hacia una economía social de mercado y, con los avances que se debieran implementar en materia institucional, se debiera ser optimista en cuanto a las perspectivas de mediano y largo plazo de la evolución de la economía chilena. Concluye este trabajo enfatizando la necesidad de avanzar aún más en el fortalecimiento económico-institucional del país, y destaca la aparición de signos de populismo y de una clase política que no parece estar a la altura de las circunstancias, lo que podría traer consecuencias negativas permanentes sobre el crecimiento y el progreso social de Chile.
