We, economists and sociologists from around the world, endorse the visionary document produced by the Constitutional Convention Ensuring sustainable growth and shared prosperity for Chile.
We believe it The new constitution It sets a new global standard in responding to the crises of climate change, economic insecurity and sustainable development. The economic provisions of the Constitution will represent gradual but substantial progress for the people of Chile.
Approach to gender issues in the constitution Marks A great leap forward in the economic model of development. For the first time, the Constitution recognizes that care work, social reproduction, and women’s health are central to the economy’s prospects.
Public services and social security approach is another source of inspiration. By creating new institutions to provide essential public services to all such as education, health, and social security, Chile is successfully applying the lessons of recent history that show the importance of these services for both short-term economic resilience and economic growth. long-term .
The constitution’s tax policy mandates promise to address Chile’s economic inequality – one of the highest in the OECD – while improving tax collection according to OECD standards, Reduce reliance on extractive rents and contribute to sustainable public finances.
The business approach represents an important and democratic response to our times. By dedicating labor rights and teamwork, The constitution aims to compensate for the crisis of fragility It affects economies around the world.
Finally, the central bank’s approach sets a new global benchmark by dedicating a mandate that takes into account financial stability, job protection, and environmental stewardship, The constitution provides for a responsible structure A central bank that fits the twenty-first century.
Taken together, we think so The new constitution creates a legal structure that will succeed in preparing Chile For a new century of equitable growth, with the prospects of attracting investment, protecting financial stability and promoting development for all Chileans. The world has to learn a lot from the typical operations of the convention and the visual product that Chile will vote for in the September referendum.
