    Abstract

    Este ensayo realiza una prueba empírica de la hipótesis del “ciclo político de los negocios” en 547 municipios colombianos en el período 1989-2008. El trabajo econométrico indica que en los municipios de categoría 6 (los más pequeños) y categoría 4, el gasto de inversión y el déficit fiscal exhiben tal ciclo: los gobernantes los amplían en época pre-electoral y luego los contraen. Los resultados se sitúan en el contexto social colombiano para entender por qué el ciclo se presenta en esos municipios y coincide con baja eficiencia del gasto público en la lucha contra la pobreza medida según NBI. Recomienda algunas acciones de política para atenuar los efectos adversos del ciclo político y mejorar tal eficiencia
