The chapter on Brazil makes a case for a more entrenched culture of fiscal austerity to make the current achievements sustainable.The Chile chapter describes the role of political cohesiveness following the return of democracy in driving the economy to fiscal rectitude.Finally, the chapter on Mexico discusses different scenarios for debt dynamics and the country's efforts to contain expenditure pressures.
