@Dayton Lavon Kitchens He was better than Franco for sure. Franco was fighting against democracy and does not want it and first introduced corporativism in economy. Only later when he favoured liberal capitalism Spain economicaly grew. However Pinochet started preparations for democracy already in 1980 with new Chilean constitution. And favoured it openly when cold war ended. In economy Pinochet's regime started with liberal reforms immediately and indeed they repaired completely ruined economy of Allende and socialists.

@pugsville for Peru number of victims of communism is smaller in Black book of communism than it was in the reallity. Also for Yugoslavia i should say many crimes are not mentioned in the book. With more investigations you usually come to more victims concerning communist regimes because they were all doing big cover ups. In Russia it was the same, first scholars thought number of victims was high in milions but not so much high as it was later discovered after the fall of USSR.
