Abstract

En este trabajo hemos tratado el concepto de paridad de poder adquisitivo y analizado la evolución de la misma siguiendo la sucesión cronológica de los distintos períodos temporales. Los distintos planteamientos que se han realizado en la teoría de la paridad de poder adquisitivo pueden explicar el funcionamiento y cumplimiento de la misma teoría pero no han logrado justificar que los tipos de cambio estén de manera permanente ajustados a la paridad de la moneda. Esto será, sin duda, el punto de partida para obtener nuevos conversores para muchas de las magnitudes económicas que están expresadas en distintas unidades monetarias. In this paper we have dealt with the concept of purchasing power parity and analized its evolution throughout the chronological succession of different periods of time. The diferent frameworks that have been established within the theory of purchasing power parity may explain that functioning and application of the theory itself but they have not been able to justify the fact that exchange rates should be permanently subjected to the parity of currency. This will be, without a doubt, thje starting point for establishing new converters for many of economic magnituds that are expressed in different monetary units.
