Demands that have emerged from the social outbreak of 2019, is seen as a Last Database sure recipe for more social tension, polarization Last Database and, eventually, greater instability. For his part, Boric's challenge in this area is not minor. The chances of success for the transformative forces behind Boric rest on their ability to walk the tightrope Last Database between indignation and the desire for change, on the one hand, and the demand for order and certainty, on the other. Greater polarization in the economic sphere would harm it. This recipe has precedents in Chile. In the last presidential elections, fears of a "Venezuelanization" of Last Database Chile were intensified if the center-left candidate won (a fact that was reflected in the popularized expression "Chilezuela"). Undoubtedly, an important part of the Last Database process of broadening its base of support will consist of generating a better and clearer Last Database programmatic prioritization, and thus making credible its promise of a path of profound transformation in peace. His first-round program includes 53 "priorities", from a new pension system to a new health system, including canceling educational debts, sharply raising the minimum wage and creating a new free public transport system. To finance this ambitious Last Database program, a tax reform is proposed that would collect 8.5% of GDP in eight years. Given the parliamentary results, in which Boric's coalition did not even come close to reaching a majority in the legislature, it will be necessary to rethink Last Database which reforms are economically, politically and socially viable. But two things are clear: he will have to expand the government coalition and choose between his Last Database priorities (the fact of having presented 53 makes them liquefy). In addition, a good part of the reforms that Boric proposes will depend on the result of the Constitutional Convention.
