FILE - In this file combo of two photos taken in June 2012, shows Rodrigo Contreras, left, and his neighbor Juan Carlos Mena, who are both unemployed, living in El Penon, a camp created by people who do not own land but who build their homes there, in the Puente Alto sector of Santiago, Chile, and at right a gardener sweeps the sidewalk outside an upscale home in Santiago's La Dehesa neighborhood. The efforts of Chile's President Sebastian Pinera to squeeze political advantage from his campaign to reduce poverty have backfired, opening him up to accusations that he distorted statistics to show progress on a campaign promise.
