Pinochet And The Fairy Tale Miracle Of Chile

Augusto Pinochet, the CIA-installed army general and dictator of Chile who ended the Salvador Allende led period of democratic government in that country, recently died at age 91. Victims of Pinochet's human rights abuses are celebrating his passing.

"I think that the death of Pinochet permits us to let go of the past and now we can look forward at the future with much more optimism and the desire to reconcile," said Maria Angelica Prats, the daughter of a Carlos Prats, an army general who was murdered by Pinochet security forces in a car bomb attack.But Pinochet's heritage is not only characterized by Human Rights violations. He also all but ruined the economy of Chile, listening to the crème de la crème of the US economic establishment. "The miracle of Chile" and similar phrases which described the experiments of economic liberalism are just so much propaganda. In reality, the economy of Chile took a hard hit and only recovered later, with a profound change of policy.

Greg Palast has the story and it makes for an interesting read.
