Anyone who's not familiar with Milton Friedman: he's the evil bastard considered the modern intellectual leader of supply side economics, whose tactics and strategies were first applied on Chile after Kissinger and D. Rockefeller engineered the military coup against the world's first elected Marxist Government.
After the US-sponsored Pinochet regime completed killing thousands of leftists who were rounded up and imprisoned in two soccer stadiums; the Friedmaneque regime ushered in "economic democracy"...eliminating all tariffs and import duties, privatizing state assets to foreign owners..including the mines, and no surprise...giving the country one of the highest wealth gaps between rich and poor! And God - Friedman was so pleased with his work, it was time to apply the Chilean model on the United States...by way of their hand-picked stooge-Ronald Reagan..preprogrammed with talking point drivel everyone would call Reaganomics. And, like they say...the rest is history!

How many jobs were created, how much did the poverty rate drop, and how much did the infant mortality rate drop under Chiles' upply-side economics during Pinochet'a reign?
