Abstract

El objetivo de este trabajo es presentar una descripción teórica de los indicadores representativos del riesgo externo de una economía, es decir, del riesgo en el ingreso doméstico derivado de los posibles shocks en los mercados internacionales. Además, se calculan dichos índices para la economía española en el periodo 1960-2000, los cuáles muestran en términos generales un incremento de dicho riesgo. Completamos la aplicación empírica con un análisis, en España y en el mismo periodo, de la relación de largo plazo entre las dos dimensiones del riesgo externo: apertura y volatilidad externa. The aim of this work is to theoretically describe the measurement of the external risk of an economy, that is to say, the domestic income risk derived from the possible shocks in the international markets. These measures are calculated for the Spanish economy in the period 1960-2000, which show in general an increase of that risk. We complete the empirical application with an analysis, in Spain and the aforementioned period, of the long-term relationship between the two dimensions of external risk: trade openness and external volatility.
