Structural Interdependence among Colombian Departments
This paper advances on the analysis of the structural interdependence among Colombiandepartments. The results show that Bogotá has a large influence in the other regionaleconomies through its purchasing power. Additionally, it can be observed a centerperipherypattern in the spatial concentration of the effects of the hypothetical extractionof any territory. From a policy point of view, the main findings reaffirm the role playedby Bogotá in the polarization process observed in the regional economies in Colombiain the last years. Any policy action oriented to reduce these regional disparities shouldtake into account that, given the structural interdependence among Colombiandepartments, new investment in the lagged regions would flow through Bogotá and themajor regional economies.
