Incrementos del Salario Mínimo Legal: un Análisis de los Costos y Beneficios sobre los Hogares colombianos en el año 2006

Listed author(s):
  • Christian Manuel Posso Suárez


Este documento calcula las pérdidas y beneficios de un incremento del Salario Mínimo Legal para Colombia en el año 2006 siguiendo la metodología de MaCurdy y McIntire (2001) y O´Brien-Strain y McCurdy (2000). Para ello, se utiliza la matriz Insumo-Producto del año 2006 y la Encuesta Continua de Hogares Nacional del primer semestre de 2006. Los resultados sugieren que un incremento del 10% en el Salario Mínimo Legal produce un aumento de 1.44% sobre el índice de precios al consumo, lo cual se refleja en una pérdida neta para los hogares colombianos de 0.73%. El ejercicio muestra que una alta proporción de los hogares más pobres no se benefician de los incrementos del Salario Mínimo, más aun, estos incrementos no tienen efectos sobre la desigualdad y la pobreza.
