Abstract

(Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se analiza si los factores institucionales, en este caso los sistemas y procedimientos electorales, inciden en el desempeño fiscal de los países latinoamericanos según el tamaño del sector público, los déficit fiscales, el tamaño de la deuda oficial y el grado de propensión a los ciclos de la política fiscal. Los autores hallan que los sistemas electorales caracterizados por subdivisiones políticas de gran tamaño y una elevada fragmentación política tienen gobiernos y déficit más grandes, así como políticas fiscales más proclives a los ciclos. Por otro lado, los procedimientos presupuestarios transparentes y jerárquicos conducen a déficit y niveles de deuda más bajos.
