Metas monetarias como instrumento de estabilización macroeconómica


  • Jorge H. Toro C.


Este artículo emprende una selección de metas monetarias para la economía colombiana utilizando una variedad de pruebas econométricas. Inicialmente se discuten las condiciones bajo las cuales se justifica adoptar una meta monetaria. Posteriormente, se distinguen dos tipos de metas: primero, una meta próxima cuya función es aportar información sobre variables económicas objetivo no observadas. Segundo, una meta intermedia, cuyo papel consiste en modificar el comportamiento de la variable objetivo. Se encuentra que efectivo en poder del público es la mejor meta próxima, mientras que la base monetaria es la mejor meta intermedia.
