Chile was amongst the top performing countries on the IWI. The positive changes in its inclusive wealth were primarily driven by produced capital, which was the main factor that offset the considerable decline in natural capital.
While Chile experienced rapid change in their productive base, on average human capital still made up the majority of its inclusive wealth from 1990 to 2008 and served as the main driver of capital accumulation, followed by natural capital.
Chile experienced a rapid depletion of its mineral resources from 1990 to 2008, primarily caused by a drawdown on its copper reserves, which explained the majority of the change in its natural capital accounts. However, a slight increase in forest resources was able to offset this decline to a certain extent.
