Abstract

Teniendo en cuenta las encuestas de hogares (DANE) del período 1984-2010 se hace un análisis de los salarios reales estudiando las diferencias regionales de Colombia, la oferta laboral reduce los salarios, en resumen la baja correlación entre los salarios reales y el empleo que se observa en la economía colombiana es similar a la predicha por el modelo elaborado.||*Este capítulo se encuentra incluido en la tercera parte del libro El mercado de trabajo en Colombia : hechos, tendencias e instituciones, titulada "El mercado de trabajo en el corto plazo"
