Peru is a developing country with a history of protectionism, “import substitution,” and substantial governmental involvement in the economy. These precluded sustained economic growth by cutting off foreign investment while wasting its own resources by subsidising inefficiency. By the late 1980s, Peru had a rapidly declining GDP and a four-digit inflation rate.
