Baja movilidad social en Bolivia:causas y consecuencias para el desarrollo


Author Info

  • Andersen, Lykke E.

    (Universidad Católica Boliviana)


El presente documento investiga la movilidad social en Bolivia y discute sus implicaciones en la reducción de la pobreza y crecimiento económico de largo plazo. Regresiones con base en la información de las encuestas de hogares muestran que la movilidad social es muy baja en Bolivia, inclusive con respecto a estándares latinoamericanos. Esto se debe principalmente a un sistema inadecuado de educación pública, a la elevada corrupción, a una conformación selectiva de parejas y a una insuficiente migración rural-urbana.Como consecuencia de ello, la pobreza tiende a ser persistente en el tiempo. Más aún, una baja movilidad social implica tanto un uso ineficiente del talento innato como pobres incentivos para el trabajo y el estudio, lo que impide que la economía boliviana alcance su tasa de crecimiento potencial.
