Hide / Show Abstract

After four years of rapid growth, the Uruguayan economy contracted by 3% in 1995 as a result of the fiscal adjustment undertaken by the Administration that took office in March and the slump in demand from Argentina. The annual rate of inflation dropped to 35%, the lowest rate since 1982, and the fiscal and external deficits narrowed. As a consequence of the recession, open unemployment rose to almost 11% and real wages declined by 3%.
