Abstract

Utilizando un modelo macroeconómico de pequeña escala para la economía colombiana, se investiga el problema de seleccionar una regla de política simple; una regla que utilice un conjunto reducido de información, que sea consistente con un régimen de inflación objetivo. A pesar de que las reglas de política simples no son tan eficientes como lo serían las reglas de política óptimas, en la literatura se ha mostrado que algunas reglas simples pueden aproximarlas muy bien. Se explican las características de los parámetros de reacción y de producto en reglas simples de Taylor e IFB, así como el horizonte óptimo de pronóstico para inflación objetivo. Mediante el uso de simulaciones estocásticas del modelo se encuentra que, como se esperaba, las reglas simples que utilizan proyecciones de la inflación en lugar de la inflación contemporánea tienen mejores propiedades de estabilización.
