I worked in Chile for several years in the 1960’s, and since that time I have retained a special interest in the country. Unfortunately, I have not been back in decades. But it is gratifying to see how well the country has done economically in the last 15 years.

An article by Jon Jeter in the Washington Post today describes that progress in a nice readable form.

There is also an interesting World Bank paper by Lauritz Holm-Nielsen and Natalia Agapitova titled “Chile - Science, Technology and Innovation”.

Note this report: “The Evolution of Science & Technology: Latin America and the Caribbean in Comparative Perspective” by Thomas Nikolaj Hansen, Natalia Agapitova, Lauritz Holm-Nielsen & Ognjenka Goga Vukmirovic.
