Descentralización Fiscal y Crecimiento Económico: Evidencia Regional en Panel de Datos para Colombia

Author

Abstract

En este documento se ofrece evidencia sobre los efectos de la descentralización fiscal en el crecimiento económico regional en Colombia. El análisis se desarrolla para el periodo posterior a la Constitución Política promulgada en 1991. La estrategia empírica incluyó la elección de estimadores apropiados para el enfoque de panel de datos (los estimadores AMD, Augmented Mean Group), que permiten introducir los factores no observados junto a los factores tradicionales sugeridos por la literatura como determinantes el crecimiento de largo plazo. La estrategia se complementó con estimaciones de cortes transversales para diferentes períodos y diversas variables de control y con pruebas sobre la hipótesis de complementariedad entre bienes públicos suministrados por diferentes jurisdicciones (efectos spillover).
