What is the economy like in Peru?
Peru is a developing country with a market-oriented economy; its 2010 per capita income is estimated by the IMF at US$5,195 and it has a high Human Development Index score of 0.723 based on 2010 data. Historically, the country’s economic performance has been tied to exports Jaire Alexander Hoodie
, which provide hard currency to finance imports and external debt payments. Although they have provided substantial revenue, self-sustained growth and a more egalitarian distribution of income have proven elusive. According to 2010 data, 31.3% of its total population is poor, including 9.8% that is extremely poor.
The socialist government of 1968-1975 failed in their attempts of income redistribution. The liberalizing government of Alberto Fujimori ended price controls, protectionism, restrictions on foreign direct investment Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Hoodie
, and most state ownership of companies in the 1990s. Reforms have permitted sustained economic growth since 1993, except for a slump after the 1997 Asian financial crisis. Services account for 53% of Peruvian gross domestic product, followed by manufacturing (22.3%), extractive industries (15%), and taxes (9.7%). Recent economic growth has been fueled by macroeconomic stability, improved terms of trade Randall Cobb Hoodie
, and rising investment and consumption. Trade is expected to increase further after the implementation of a free trade agreement with the United States signed on April 12, 2006. Peru’s main exports are copper, gold, zinc, textiles, and fish meal; its major trade partners are the United States Mike Daniels Hoodie
, China, Brazil, and Chile.
