Chile - Hypercapitalist Teacher's Pet

Great article on Chile from the New York Times:

Today, Chile is a hypercapitalist state at a time when Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador and Uruguay are all moving leftward and questioning free trade and open markets. Chile may also be suffering from what might be called teacher's pet syndrome. Since the 1980's, other Latin American countries have had to endure repeated lectures from the United States, Europe and Japan on the need to become more like Chile in opening their economies to the outside world and combating corruption.
