El ahorro privado y los términos de intercambio: el caso colombiano


Author Info

  • Alejandro Gaviria



En este trabajo se estudia la relación entre el ahorro privado y los términos de intercambio utilizando un modelo de maximización intertemporal para un consumidor representativo. Se muestra, en principio, que es imposible establecer, bajo consideraciones meramente teóricas, una relación unívoca entre las magnitudes mencionadas, pues la misma dependerá de los valores de las elasticidades de sustitución intertemporal e intratemporal entre comercializables y no comercializables. Se muestra, a continuación, que dados los valores de las elasticidades calculadas para Colombia es posible afirmar que en este país los aumentos en los términos de intercambio han estado acompañados de aumentos en el ahorro privado cumpliéndose, por tanto, as predicciones del llamado efecto Harberger-Laursen-Metzler.
