One of the great right-wing Big Lies (there are many) is "Chile's economic miracle", in which neoliberal and "free-market" reforms were enacted under the military dictator Augusto Pinochet and are said to have ushered in a new era of capitalism and prosperity which the US would do well to follow today. They say this to justify the fact that Pinochet's government was one based on sheer force, brutality and murder, not consent...but I'm not here to talk about his crimes. Anyways, Chile had a major banking crisis in 1982 brought on by years of following Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek and the Chicago Boys' neoliberal economic policies. What did Pinochet do? He kicked out the Chicago Boys and brought in new people. He nationalized multiple banks. The succeeding governments were center-left ones which cut poverty by increasing social spending 210%, increasing the minimum wage, and across-the-board tax increases. So whenever a rightie tells you about how much of a "success story" Chile under Pinochet was, be sure to point out to them that they are referencing economic policies from the 1970s which were largely abandoned because they were terrible and didn't work.
