Abstract

En un escenario como el actual, de continua apreciación nominal del pesocolombiano frente al dólar, se hace relevante insistir en el uso de un concepto másamplio, como es la tasa de cambio real (TCR), para examinar las causas de laapreciación y evaluar la competitividad del país. Son muchos los enfoques a partirde los cuales se aborda el concepto de esta variable y por ello nació la idea delObservatorio de TCR. Su propósito esencial es centralizar y proveer las herramientasnecesarias para su análisis respondiendo a las inquietudes de los agentesinvolucrados y constituyéndose en un elemento para la toma de decisiones de políticaeconómica. En este documento se proponen medidas alternativas de fácilseguimiento para evaluar periódicamente la evolución de la TCR y se analiza deforma preliminar qué tan desalineadas están sus distintas variantes respecto de sunivel de largo plazo. Las medidas alternativas muestran tendencias similares a lasmediciones tradicionales, aunque difieren en la magnitud e interpretación del efecto.En cuanto a los determinantes del TCR a nivel global las ganancias en productividadrelativa derivan en una moneda más fuerte. La información disponible sugiere que laindustria colombiana ha incrementado su productividad, en especial si se comparacon Estados Unidos y que el nivel actual del tipo de cambio real es cercano a aquelque es consistente con el grado de desarrollo de la economía.
