Gasto público y convergencia regional en Colombia

  • Laura Ardila Rueda

Abstract

Este trabajo pretende revisar si existe evidencia de convergencia en el ingreso per cápita entre los departamentos colombianos, mediante una metodología que permite analizar la dinámica de la distribución del ingreso entre ellos, y cómo cambian los resultados al introducir los efectos del consumo público y la inversión pública departamental. Los resultados muestran que el período de 1985 a 1996 se caracterizó por una alta persistencia en la distribución del ingreso per cápita entre los departamentos, y que el gasto público, especialmente la inversión, sí ha afectado la posición relativa de algunos departamentos, pero no la dinámica de la distribución en su conjunto.
