Chilean Debt
Given the heavy emphasis on the role of the private sector in Chilean development, the government took the position at the outset of the debt crisis that a large portion of Chile's external debt--private sector debt--was not its problem.

Smartest way to pay debt refinance, home equity loan or a payment ...
