In this sense the conflict over water rights mirrored the deeper conflict within the government over neoliberal policies in general. There were essentially two positions: the neoliberals (nearly all of them economists) favored fully adopting the market model, but they were opposed by more conservative elements within the armed forces, the agricultural sector, and the state's irrigation bureaucracy. Agriculture has historically been the dominant water use in Chile, and it was the sector most interested in reforming the previous Water Code.

Even so, this new form of judicial review has arguably made special administrative courts unnecessary (courts which were still mentioned in the 1980 Constitution and then abandoned in the 1989 reforms). Appellate Courts' decisions on recursos are often appealed to the Supreme Court. 44 In practice, the recurso de protecci6n has had marked strengths and weaknesses. Most Chilean lawyers like it: it is often a fast and effective way to get a response from a legal system plagued by formalities and delays.

Rare Chilean exceptions include A. Fontaine (1993); Guerrero (1979), a fonner lawyer for the Central Bank who argued that judicial procedures to resolve private conflicts had to be simple and fast or they would force more state intervention. S. neoconservatives have emphasized the need for a stronger judiciary in order to control government regulation, see Note 5. 61. See Note 35.
