Abstract

Una de las preocupaciones básicas acerca de la teoría del crecimiento y desarrollo económico ha sido la de conocer si las diferencias en los niveles de bienestar y riqueza existentes entre países tienden a disminuir o a desaparecer. Desde un debate amplio sobre la teoría de la convergencia y teniendo en cuenta las definiciones y los objetivos del desarrollo humano, este trabajo, mediante la aplicación de la técnica econométrica de datos de panel, pretende encontrar el grado de convergencia regional en Colombia, abordando la importancia que tienen las disparidades en el contexto del desarrollo humano, el cual surge como herramienta fundamental para el crecimiento económico sostenible y generalizado, que además de generar productividad en la economía, puede contribuir en la disminución de las brechas de inequidad. El enfoque de este informe de investigación estará encaminado por los lineamientos neoclásicos, inmersos en el contexto multidimensional del índice de desarrollo humano (IDH).
