Hassan Akram, an academic from the Diego Portales University, with a Maaster and a Doctorate from the University of Cambridge, presents a solid analysis about the origin of the discomfort expressed in the social outbreak in Chile as the outcome` from rampant capitalism. Through a review of the economic and social figures of Chile, in a comparative exercise with those of other nations, the complacency of the supporters of the "Chilean model" is evident. The discomfort, which so many researchers have been able to verify, is not a myth but the result of an inequality beyond all norms, which translates into low wages and misery pensions, some of the most heartfelt reasons that have prompted people to mobilize. Placing Chile in the world context of other extreme neoliberalism experiments (such as the cases of the United Kingdom and the United States), the text relates this inequality to said economic model.
