What effect did Pinochet's war on drugs and execution of drug users have on Chile's productivity per capita?
If you have data for the Philippines, that would be a bonus.

The OECD has productivity data (GDP per hour worked) going back to 1986, so it has data for the last 4 years of Pinochet's rule. In each of those years, productivity increased.
On a scale in which 2010 is 100, Chilean productivity increased from 43 to 47 between 1986 and 1990. This is typical productivity growth for most countries at the time. There is no particular evidence in these data that Pinochet had much effect on productivity. However, Chilean productivity grew sharply between 1994 and 1997. Which could be seen as a delayed response to his downfall in 1990 or could be unrelated/cyclical changes.
