Chile launched a massive $5.5 billion stimulus package on Monday after data showed its economy contracted 3.4 percent in October -- the largest year-on-year drop in a decade -- amid widespread social unrest. The package unveiled by Finance Minister Ignacio Briones includes boosting 2020 public spending by $3.03 billion, to support small, medium and large businesses. Another $525 million are earmarked for other initiatives like the renovation of the metro system in Santiago, which has sustained serious damage since protests erupted on October 18.
