El presente trabajo trata de evaluar los posibles efectos que, sobre diferentes agregados macroeconómicos, hogares, actividad productiva y precios, tendría una reducción de las cuotas empresariales a la Seguridad Social para una economía regional, concretamente la andaluza, adecuándolas a niveles medios europeos. Para ello se utiliza un modelo de equilibrio general aplicado (MEGA), utilizando como base de datos una matriz de contabilidad social (MCS) de Andalucía para 1995. Los resultados obtenidos confirman la intuición de que, una reducción en dicho impuesto, mejora sustancialmente la actividad económica y la situación de la mayoría de las economías domésticas. The present work tries to evaluate the possible effects on different aggregates as consumers, production, and prices as a reduction of the Social Security paid by firms in a regional economy, specifically Andalusian region, towards average European levels. Therefore we use an applied general equilibrium model (AGE), calibrated by using a social accounting matrix (SAM) of Andalusia for 1995. The concluding remarks confirm the intuition that a decreasing in this tax improves the economic activity and moreover the welfare of the majority of consumers are better.
