Abstract

Se ha estudiado la existencia de quiebres estructurales en la PTF y en varios indicadores de apertura para una muestra de 20 economías latinoamericanas y del Caribe para el período 1960-2005. Se han utilizado los tests de Zivot y Andrews (1992) y el de Bai Perron (1998) sobre una serie de PTF computada a partir de un ejercicio de contabilidad del desarrollo (Hsieh y Klenow, 2010) y sobre medidas alternativas de apertura con diferentes caracteres (Wacziarg, 2001). Los casos de quiebre en la PTF durante el proceso de consolidación de la apertura en la región (1985-1995) no son significativos. Los resultados parecen indicar que los shocks en la apertura operan sobre las tasas de crecimiento de la PTF.
