Abstract

Este ensayo examina el intento por parte de Jordi Maluquer de Motes de construir “una nueva y más sólida estimación del Producto Interior Bruto (PIB) de España”. Para ello elabora una serie histórica del PIB a precios corrientes para 1850-1958. Además, extrapola retrospectivamente las series enlazadas de la contabilidad nacional con esta serie histórica a fin de obtener una nueva estimación del PIB a precios corrientes y constantes para 1850-2000. Errores de tipo estadístico y económico, como la utilización del Índice de Precios al Consumo (IPC) para reflactar el PIB en términos reales, invalidan su estimación. Además, debido al procedimiento aceptado para enlazar la contabilidad nacional, su propuesta de PIB a precios constantes da lugar a niveles de producto real por habitante que exageran la posición relativa internacional de la economía española.
