The Socialist Impulse

Charles D. Ameringer

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses the adoption of neoliberalism shortly after the collapse of creole socialism. Compared to its predecessor, however, neoliberalism or free market policies were not popular in Latin America. The chapter also looks at Augusto Pinochet, who was one of the first to impose neoliberalism in Chile. Pinochet was determined to snuff out Communism, and thanks to his horrifying human rights record, he tended to give neoliberalism a bad name from the outset. Other leaders who imposed neoliberalism in their respective Latin American countries are also discussed in this chapter.

Keywords:   neoliberalism, creole socialism, free market, Augusto Pinochet, Chile, Communism
