Title: Argentina, Brazil, Chile : democracy and market economies
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Todman, Terence A.; Hayes, Margaret Daly
Abstract: Examines the development of democracy and market economies in Chile, Brazil, and Argentina.
Description: As Argentina, Brazil, and Chile sought to complete the transition from dictatorship to democracy, each faced a host of social and economic problems. In Brazil, inflation, corruption, and rampant unemployment threatened to undermine the nation's growing economy, and Argentina faced similar problems as it grappled with the transformation from a command to a market economy. Chile, often cited as the region's economic success story, also experienced growing pains in the form of political threats from the country's resurgent right wing. In this episode, host Peter Krogh is joined by Terence Todman, former Assistant Secretary of State for Latin American Affairs and Ambassador to Argentina, and Dr. Margaret Daly Hayes of the Center for Naval Analysis, to discuss the development of democracy and free market economies in the Southern Cone. Together, they answer the questions, will democracy take root in these evolving countries, and what obstacles threaten their progress?
