Chile's Copper Crash

Geoff Riley

21st June 2017

Copper runs through the veins of Chile and the industry has accounted for up to 25% of GDP. But the copper boom has fizzled out with falling world prices.

This special report from the Financial Times looks at prospects for a country built on copper which during the boom carried the country to an annual growth rate of more than 4% a year and made the country one of the richest in Latin America. This is a superb enrichment video covering economic issues such as primary product dependence, trade and development, the terms of trade and barriers to growth.
