    In this study we analyze the empirical regularities of the desinflationary processes implemented in different countries during the period 1970-1998. In order to revert inflationary tendencies the monetary authority must implement restrictive monetary policies, which raise the real rate and appreciate the real exchange rate, affecting the rate of economic growth. The analysis focuses on the determinants of the costs associated with the reduction of the rate inflation. We also present a model that attempts to capture the elements relevant in the disinflationary process and the costs associated with it.// Este trabajo es resultado de un estudio de las regularidades empíricas de los procesos desinflacionarios implantados en distintos países durante el periodo de 1970-1998.

Se presenta además un modelo macroeconómico que intenta captar los elementos relevantes del proceso desinflacionario y sus costos asociados.
