This I.S. addresses the University of Chicago's great influence in developing and spreading neoliberal economic doctrine following World War II. The paper analyzes the Chicago School's role in implementing neoliberal theory into economic development policy, first in Latin America and, later, in the development of Structural Adjustment Policies. Finally, my I.S. presents an empirical analysis of the effectiveness of Structural Adjustment Policies in promoting economic growth and development.
