    Abstract

    Cuáles son las consecuencias de las negociaciones salariales sobre la política monetaria en una país en transición a un menor nivel de inflación? Mostramos que la indexación de los salarios a la inflación esperada, la mayor credibilidad del banco central y la mayor frecuencia de los ajustes salariales puede aumentar el efecto de la política monetaria y reducir el costo de la desinflación. Importantes ganancias en términos de bienestar pueden obtenerse por medio del mejor cumplimiento de las metas de inflación y de la mayor precisión en los pronósticos de inflación pues esto aumenta la credibilidad del banco central. Políticas salariales como la propuesta por la Corte Constitucional de Colombia pueden tener importantes consecuencias negativas en términos de producto y salarios reales.
