Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)

Abstract

The opening up of the Chilean economy was achieved through a far-reaching unilateral trade liberalization process, which formed one component of an overall reform package where free market prices, comparative advantage and private sector entrepreneurship all played leading roles. A sharp real devaluation of the exchange rate had an important effect on the successful expansion of Chilean exports. A brief overview of these issues is provided in section 1.
