• Peru   2020

In the postwar period Peru developed under the import substitution model. In the 1970's a significant some of money was spent on imported weaponry which led to debt payment problems further on. Peru suffered a sharp contraction in 1982, coinciding with the Latin American debt crisis, and in 1985 Alan Garcia was elected President. Garcia instituted drastic measures to reform the economy, including limiting external debt payments to 10% of export earnings, which meant that technically Peru was in default.

His term ended in 1990 with the economy in severe contraction and suffering hyperinflation. Peru had become, in effect, a failed state. Garcia was succeeded by Fujimori who reverted to more orthodox economic management.  He managed to get the State deficit under control and brought inflation down to single digits. Growth during his first five year term was patchy but was much better during his second term.

Peru, since the turn of the Millennium, is a much better run country than it was in the past. Growth has been steady, exports have expanded considerably and diversified and economic marginalisation has been reduced. In addition, the rebel Shining Path movement has ceased to be a threat.
