Abstract

La mayoría de los primeros bancos centrales que surgieron en el planeta ejercíaciertas formas incipientes de regulación y supervisión de los bancos comerciales.Posteriormente, algunos países optaron por depositar esa responsabilidad enagencias gubernamentales especializadas, entre ellos Colombia. Luego vinieron losAcuerdos Basilea I y II, que apuntaron hacia el establecimiento de un mínimo depatrones internacionales comunes. No obstante, con la liberalización y desregulaciónde los mercados de capitales, la multiplicación de nuevos intermediarios financierosno bancarios, y el desarrollo de nuevos productos financieros - varios orientados adispersar los riesgos y a aislarlos de sus balances- , y en medio de la ostensible faltade independencia de no pocos órganos supervisores frente a gobiernos y sectoresprivados, se ha vuelto en extremo frágil la política monetaria convencional. Esto es,aquella basada fundamentalmente y de modo casi exclusivo en el manejo de las tasasde interés de intervención a cargo de los bancos centrales. En este documento elautor presenta, para el caso de Colombia, los principales argumentos que respaldansu propuesta de confiarle adicionalmente al banco central las funciones deregulación y supervisión. El propósito que con ello se busca es garantizar ysalvaguardar la efectividad de la política monetaria, de cara al control de lainflación y a la estabilidad financiera, al considerar que, frente a las nuevasrealidades, aquellas representan una pieza medular e inseparable de esta.
