Gasto público, permanencia en el poder y crecimiento económico /Public Spending, Staying Power and Economic Growth
AbstractEl objetivo de este documento es analizar cómo el gobierno determina la proporción de gasto público para maximi-zar su beneficio político y permanecer en el poder. Usando modelos de crecimiento y haciendo modificaciones en los mismos, este estudio demuestra que las acciones de gasto público y la tasa de crecimiento se determinan en función de los parámetros de ganancia política. Asimismo, los resultados de las simulaciones muestran que si la ganancia política de las políticas de distribuciónes alta, el gobierno destinará una mayor parte del fondo para fines de distribu-ción que afectan negativamente al crecimiento económico. The aim of this paper is to analyze how the government determines the proportion of public spending to maximize its political benefit and stay in power. Using growth models and making modifications in them, this study demonstrates that the actions of public expenditure and growth rate are determined by the parameters of political gain. Also, the results of the simulations show that if the political gain of distribution policy is high, the government will allocate a greater share of the fund for purposes of distribution adversely affecting economic growth.
