Piñera's Penguins

Here's a little something that was published today on the America's Quarterly website. I have already commented on the Adimark poll, but as I say in the piece, maybe the most interesting part is the low marks Chileans give the government on the economy. It's similar to what was happening in Chile in 2008, right before the crisis hit. However, at that time Lehman and his Brothers helped bring inflation under control. Also, the Bachelet government's social policy helped mitigate some of the effects of the crisis (or at least, helped project the image of a government concerned about mitigating the effects of the crisis). It's not very clear what internal or external factors will help change things around this time.
