Obama is about to come to Chile. Does well. Chile has taken the lead in Latin America. It is likely that the next generation to live in a first world country, which means social levels reach to seventy percent of the census. How did he do? What happened in that country?

talk about that a year ago Sebastián Piñera became president of Chile greeted by a devastating earthquake which damages were estimated at thirty billion dollars.
However, objective assessment of those 12 months is reasonably good.

Look at the numbers: GDP growth of 5.2%, slightly higher productivity, lower inflation by 25% (of 4 went to 3), reducing crime and relatively peaceful social climate, although Some left angry tried to present the new government as the return of Pinochet, which presaged a confrontational atmosphere.

In any case, more important achievements or their failure Piñera - rose unexpectedly taxes, prevented the creation of a coal-fired power plant needed to pressure from environmentalists - is the smooth continuation of the work of government.

Similarly in 1989, chaired by Christian Democrat Patricio Aylwin, a center-left coalition replaced the Pinochet dictatorship after a disputed election, but did not give up the positive aspects of the general left, but was dedicated to building a modern democracy governed economically by the market and private enterprise.
Piñera has done exactly the same: it assumes power after the socialist Michelle Bachelet not destroy anything.
simply continues the march, the government proposes certain measures that he and his experts find most effective, corrects or reverses others, and all remain under the authority of law and pursuant to the institutions.

why Chile is now the most successful nation in Latin America.
The vast majority of society agrees that the best model of coexistence is found within the political paradigm of liberal democracy and in market fundamentals and the supremacy of civil society.

Consequently, politicians and civic peaceful moves within that spectrum, which is also that of the twenty-seven European Union nations, and a dozen other winners of the first world countries: USA, Canada, Switzerland, Israel, Japan, Australia, South Korea and a brief and so on.

Finally, those who make up the range of Chilean liberal democracy - Christian Democrats, Social Democrats, liberals and conservatives, whatever their official names - have understood that there are irreconcilable enemies, but members of the same political family, can do coalitions, differentiated only by minor differences that do not question the system in which they live, but the style of management.

What is discussed Passion is the amount of the tax burden, the public spending priorities and social norms: abortion, sexual preference, position on drug use and the rest of the usual moral cockpits.

That is maturity.
nations behave so serious.
smoothly, without delusions revolutionaries aimed at reshaping the nation according to the fantasies of the shift leader.

is true that in societies triumphant heroes usually are not politicians, but prominent entrepreneurs create wealth, scientists have made great discoveries, the athletes who have managed to break Olympic marks or intellectual and universally admired artists.

societies in these countries are not slaughtered to glorify their rulers, but the reverse happens: "Governments are slaughtered for the glory of the societies they serve"
come to power not to command but to obey and serve.

That's what Chile has done for over twenty years.

There is no secret.
