How has Chile become the bastion of neoliberalism in the world?
In the middle of the Cold War, the University of Chicago gave scholarships to a group of Chilean students to study economics under the teachings of Milton Friedman. Twenty years later, during Pinochet’s dictatorship, they changed the destiny of Chile. This insightful documentary, narrated by the Chicago Boys themselves, brings a retrospective look that helps to understand the present and questions the idea of “the end justifies the means”. [12A]
