Abstract

La crisis financiera de 2008 evidenció tanto las fragilidades del sistema financiero internacional como las consecuencias de la globalización financiera y comercial. Así, lo que comenzó como un problema de incumplimiento de pagos en el mercado inmobiliario estadounidense se tradujo en la peor recesión mundial desde la posguerra. Todo ello incrementó la aversión al riesgo internacional, los flujos de capital de las economías desarrolladas y emergentes, las relaciones comerciales y bancarias, el crecimiento económico y el empleo a nivel mundial. Este trabajo tiene tres objetivos: primero, cuantificar y describir el contexto macroeconómico de los flujos de capital antes y después de la crisis internacional, segundo, enunciar los hechos más relevantes durante el desarrollo de la crisis, para con ellos tratar de identificar sus posibles causas, y tercero, presentar el debate académico respecto al papel desempeñado por los desbalances macroeconómicos en el origen de la crisis. En síntesis, la evidencia sugiere que fue la conjunción de muchos factores los que detonaron y transmitieron las secuelas recesivas a nivel mundial. En particular, aunque los desbalances macroeconómicos no fueron la principal causa de la crisis, éstos tuvieron un efecto amplificador significativo.
