¿Contribuye la ayuda extranjera a reducir la desigualdad del ingreso?

(Disponible en inglés) El propósito de este trabajo es ofrecer elementos de juicio empíricos sobre el vínculo entre la asistencia extranjera y la desigualdad del ingreso durante el período de 1973-2002. Dado que las regresiones de muestras de países no se pueden considerar resultados de series temporales `verdaderas`, también nos concentramos en técnicas dinámicas de datos de panel, que permiten dar cuenta de posibles problemas de simultaneidad y heterogeneidad. No hallamos elementos de juicio muy robustos de que la asistencia extranjera sea conducente al mejoramiento de la distribución del ingreso, incluso cuando se toma en cuenta la calidad de las instituciones. Este hallazgo se corresponde con investigaciones empíricas recientes sobre la asistencia y el crecimiento que muestran que dicha relación es débil en el mejor de los casos.
