Abstract

Se presenta evidencia clara a favor de la hipótesis de que la estructura a plazo real contiene información sobre las expectativas de la actividad económica en Colombia para los plazos entre 6 y 12, 6 y 24, y 12 y 24 meses adelante. Los signos de los coeficientes estimados son, en todos los casos, los que predice la teoría. La capacidad de pronóstico del modelo es mejor para el período entre 6 y 12 meses adelante que para períodos superiores.
