Preview

This chapter tallies the score in terms of a report card on the Toledo administration with respect to the central themes of the book, Toledo's vision for Peru versus the reality of the policies he pursued during his presidency. Visions establish hopes and fears; history then determines which will prevail. One thing that is clear is that Toledo developed a long-term strategy for the socioeconomic and political development of Peru, and he largely stuck to that approach, even as short-term problems increasingly cried out for populist solutions. In so doing, Toledo's vision often clashed with Peruvian realities.

Keywords: Toledo administration; presidency; political vision; economic development; institutional reform; corruption
