Judging by figures for the production of goods, in 1954, Chile’s gross product appears to have remained at the low level of the preceding year when there was a sharp downward movement in relation to 1952. A slight decline thus took place in the per capita gross product. Nor was any great variation apparent in available goods, although the investment coefficient of the latter fell from 18.5 per cent in 1953 to 13.2 per cent in 1954. But the fall appears smaller if variations in stocks are excluded. Imports of capital goods reached their lowest level during the last five years.
