Chilean Growth Through East Asian Eyes

This paper contrasts Chile’s record of economic growth with that of high performing East Asian economies. It argues that the latter have done more with detailed microeconomic reforms and public sector interventions that have spurred faster innovation and accumulation of human and physical capital. The East Asian process builds on a vision, quantitative growth targets, and a partnership with the private sector that is constantly fine-tuned during implementation. The Chilean process is rules-based.
