Abstract

La Tasa Social de Descuento (TSD) para un país es un parámetro relevante en el Análisis Costo Beneficio que permite descontar los flujos de beneficios y costos económicos (sociales) futuros de un proyecto o un programa a un periodo presente. El objetivo del presente documento es proponer una metodología práctica con fundamentación teórica y con una aplicación a la economía boliviana. La metodología utilizada es una ponderación respecto a la participación del financiamiento de la inversión pública de la tasa marginal de preferencia temporal, la tasa marginal de rendimiento del capital y la tasa de costo de oportunidad de los recursos del exterior. El resultado del enfoque metodológico para Bolivia arrojó un valor de la TSD 8,5%. La principal recomendación es el proceso continuo de actualización periódica de la TSD ante variaciones en los costos de oportunidad de los recursos y la participación de las fuentes de financiamiento respectivas.
