16 The popular bases of these political movements meant inevitable pressure for the extension of social welfare services involving the establishment of government agencies to provide services for peasants and housing for workers, labor ministries involved in the setting of wages and benefits, and a plethora of boards and agencies regulating private sector behavior. The state now took on a leadership role in economic development, providing quota and tariff protection for domestic industry, loans, and infrastructural development.

By the late s, average tariff protection stood at  percent, reaching  percent in some cases (Edwards , ). Support for a highly interventionist state was widely accepted in Chilean society, including among most Chilean entrepreneurs who had grown up under the protection of the state. There had been two attempts at stabilization (– and –), and both had failed. Although most Chileans accepted the primacy of the state in economic matters, by the s there was a clear lack of consensus on the issue of state protection of property rights.

Until , Chile had a liberal pluralist political system operating in a Latin American social and economic setting. The willingness of elites to open the political system to opposition groups through electoral politics was without doubt a key contributor to the longevity of the country’s democratic political stability. But while Chile’s political system gave free rein to political competition, it had neither the legitimizing societal consensus of a liberal democracy 1 nor the cooptative capabilities of Latin American clientelism and corporatism.
