Turner says that Peron was both idealistic and romantic, both autocratic and democratic --- in short, a combination of sometimes incongruous-opposites. Peron's "ideals were far grander than his lasting achievements; he sincerely wanted to improve the welfare of the least privileged members of his society. Yet, despite distributionist policies that made the poor unswervingly loyal to him, his economic initiatives spurred inflation and undercut the economic growth that might have been the surest aid to the lower classes in the long run" (p. 3).
