Abstract

En este trabajo se argumenta que la política más efectiva para reducir las enormes desigualdades regionales que se observan en Colombia es la inversión en el capital humano de la gente de la periferia del país. En la primera sección se hace un repaso de lo que fue el sueño de los liberales radicales de fines del siglo XIX, quienes trataron de modernizar muchos aspectos de la vida económica y social del país. Un tema al cual le otorgaron la mayor importancia, la creación de un sistema de educación primaria, universal, laica y gratuita, termino en el fracaso debido a que los sectores conservadores le devolvieron el control de la educación a la Iglesia Católica. De cierta manera, los anhelos de los radicales siguen sin haberse logrado del todo. En la última sección, a manera de ilustración, se proponen cuatro estrategias de inversión en capital que permitirían que la periferia mejore su situación con respecto a las regiones más desarrolladas. Se realiza una cuantificación del valor de esas propuestas para el caso de la Costa Caribe, la región rezagada con el mayor número de habitantes.
