Abstract

El propósito de este documento es examinar la coyuntura macroeconómica con el fin de replantear una estrategia monetaria que pueda mantener inflaciones de un dígito, cuando quiera que la actividad económica se recupere, la tasa de desempleo regrese a sus niveles de largo plazo y se logre superar la debilidad del sistema financiero. Una buena opción es la de profundizar el llamado sistema de “inflación objetivo” (inflation targeting), aprovechando la experiencia que han ganado en este frente países desarrollados (como Gran Bretaña o Canadá) o inclusive economías emergentes (como Chile o Israel) a lo largo de los años noventa. Una condición básica para la aplicación de esta estrategia es romper la “dependencia fiscal” que ha mostrado el manejo monetario en los últimos años, a lo cual contribuirá la implantación exitosa del programa económico acordado con el Fondo Monetario Internacional. Hacia el futuro, la política monetaria y crediticia debe verse repotenciada gracias a la reciente adopción del régimen de flotación cambiaria.
