       Zuazo is defeated in elections by Paz Estenssoro, who promptly moves to curb the extremely high inflation levels, which at one point reach 35,000% annually. He imposes austerity measures under pressure from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in exchange for temporary relief of Bolivia's large foreign debt.
