NYT Fernando Belaunde Terry, 89, Former Peruvian Leader, Dies: "Mr. Belaśnde campaigned carrying a shovel to symbolize his pledge to create a million new jobs through agricultural projects.
But while he embraced more liberal policies, he made little impression on the country's deep economic problems, which included an annual inflation rate surpassing 100 percent, a growing burden of foreign debt payment and high unemployment."
