Chicago Boys

The Chicago Boys (c. 1970s) were a group of economists, trained at the University of Chicago, who were later influential in Chile, under the administration of Augusto Pinochet. The group was influenced by Arnold Harshberger[?]'s Latin American Finance Workshop[?], Milton Friedman's Money and Banking Workshop[?], and the Chicago school of economics. Journalist Greg Palast claims to have infiltrated this group during the early 1970s, while working undercover for electric and steel unions.
