Abstract

La incertidumbre bajo periodos de inestabilidad institucional, traducida en violencia, puede destruir las dotaciones de capital físico y humano de la economía y, desestimular la inversión. En este trabajo se analiza el impacto de largo plazo de la violencia en el crecimiento económico de Colombia, en el período 1950-2010. La evidencia econométrica apoya la existencia de una relación negativa entre la violencia, medida por la tasa de homicidios, y el crecimiento económico. Los resultados sugieren que se debe realizar un esfuerzo institucional concertado para mejorar la inversión en educación y seguridad con el fin de acelerar el crecimiento.
