Abstract

Este documento estudia el impacto distributivo del programa de asignaciones familiares universales a pocos meses de su implementación. El trabajo contribuye con estimaciones de su potencial impacto directo sobre un conjunto de variables, incluyendo la pobreza y la desigualdad monetarias, y con la discusión de algunas opciones alternativas a la efectivamente implementada. El documento sostiene que el país ha avanzado en la dirección correcta en términos de basar su política social en un masivo programa de transferencias de ingreso, pero alerta sobre la necesidad de mejorar su estructura y asegurar su sustentabilidad, y señala algunas alternativas de implementación.
