    Abstract

    Este trabajo tiene como objetivo examinar la evolución de algunas teoríassobre estructura de capital, desde el punto de vista de la economía fi nancieray que han surgido a partir de la década de 1950, con el fi n de poderevidenciar los diversos enfoques surgidos alrededor de este concepto apartir del estudio de diferentes autores. Además se muestra que a pesar delos avances en el estudio de la estructura de capital, aún no ha sido posiblellegar a un consenso con respecto a cuál es la teoría que mejor se acercaa las condiciones fi nancieras tanto externas como internas que enfrenta unafi rma. Tampoco se ha podido dar respuesta a la pregunta que en su escritoMyers (1984, p. 575) se plantea acerca de cómo eligen las empresas suestructura de capital. Se construye un cuerpo teórico a partir del análisisdesde los mercados perfectos e imperfectos y fi nalmente se resaltan algunosestudios realizados en Colombia con los resultados obtenidos.AbstrActCAPITAL STRUCTURE. THEORETICAL EVOLUTIONThis paper´s objective is to examine the evolution of some of theories aboutcapital structure from the financial economy point of view arising emergingall the way from the 50´s in order to evidence the different approachesaround the concept of different authors. It also shows that in spite of theadvances in the study of capital structure, there hasn´t been a consensusregarding which is the closest theory to the internal and external financialconditions that a Firm faces. Neither has there been an answer to thequestion that Myers (1984, p. 575) asks about how companies choose theircapital structure. A theoretical body is built from the analysis of perfect andimperfect markets and finally highlighted some studies made in Colombiawith the obtained results.rEsUMOESTRUTURA DE CAPITAL.
