Impuestos parafiscales y mercado laboral: Un análisis de Equilibrio General Computable


  • Gustavo Adolfo HERNANDEZ DIAZ



Utilizando un modelo de equilibrio general computable se analiza el efecto deeliminar los impuestos parafiscales en Colombia y reemplazarlos por otrafuente de financiación, en este caso el incremento de otro tipo de impuesto(IVA, impuestos indirectos o al capital). Se encuentra que la eliminación de losimpuestos parafiscales produce una disminución de un punto porcentual en latasa de desempleo, sien embargo, cuando este impuesto es reemplazado porotro tipo de impuestos los efectos sobre la tasas de desempleo pueden llegar aser nulos. Por tanto, el eliminar los impuestos parafiscales no produce losefectos esperados por un análisis de equilibrio parcial, esto es, una significativadisminución de la tasa de desempleo.
