economic policy responses and the effects of counter-cyclical policies in Chile since the 2008-09 crisis until 2012 are the subject of this chapter. The author argues that macroeconomic vulnerability to external fluctuations has made Chile’s fiscal and external balances dangerously dependent on high copper prices, and inflation targeting too much dependent on a volatile and appreciated exchange rate.

Keywords:   macroeconomic vulnerability, copper prices, exchange rate appretiation, equitable growth, financierism, inflation targeting, Chilean economy
