Este documento presenta un cálculo del Costo de uso del capital para Colombia en el periodo 1990-2007. Seguidamente, contrasta este cálculo con la dinámica de la inversión en el mismo periodo. Se encuentra que la relación entre inversión y costo de uso es muy estrecha, y se comprueba que el enorme crecimiento de la inversión en los últimos periodos está asociado a niveles bajos y estables del costo de uso del capital. ***** This paper presents the construction of the use cost of capital for the Colombian economy in 1990-2007. Then, this calculation is contrasted with the dynamic of investment in the same period. It is found that the relation between investment and use cost of capital is very narrow, and it is proved that the large growth of investment in the last periods is associated with low and stable levels of the use cost of capital.
