Pinochet and the Chilean Economic Miracle?
Mike Rappaport

Tyler Cowan writes what appears to be well-informed, nuanced and balanced view of Pinochet.  Here is his bottom line:

Pinochet the man behaved so badly, both during his term and after, as to be morally indefensible.  From second hand accounts I have heard, it is also not clear how much the man himself was personally responsible for the good economic policies.  Still many good policies happened.  We need a closer look at the Chilean economic legacy, which is a complicated story and by no means wholly negative.
