Abstract

For decades, industrial policy was a taboo subject. But this has changed, and nowadays it is recognised that selective State interventions have played a central role in successful development cases. This essay consists of three parts: first I explain what industrial policy is and why it is necessary, discussing the arguments for and against it; part two summarises the history of industrial policies in Chile, especially during the last decade; the third part presents some general guidelines for a future industrial policy. The recently announced productivity agenda mentions industrial policy, but is silent about several of the issues discussed here.
