El Origen Politico Del Deficit Fiscal En Colombia: El Contexto Institucional 20 Años Despues

  • Eduardo Wiesner

    ()

Registered author(s):

    El presente artículo desarrolla la tesis que la Constitución de 1991 elevó el gasto público total a niveles no sostenibles generando serios problemas fiscales que no han podido ser corregidos en su raíz estructural. La gran limitante a esta corrección ha sido la insuficiencia de apoyo político para proteger la estabilidad macroeconómica del país y verla como un patrimonio político común" a todos los ciudadanos. Esta situación ha sido agravada por recientes fallos de la Corte Constitucional que interfieren con las leyes de ajuste fiscal. Dentro de este contexto la independencia del Banco de la República ha sido un avance de enorme beneficio al desarrollo institucional del marco macroeconómico en general."
