Abstract

Este documento resume los conceptos que sustentan la independencia del banco central (IBC) así como la evidencia empírica reciente respecto a los índices de IBC para el Banco Central de Reserva del Perú (BCRP). En particular, se describe cómo han evolucionado tanto la independencia legal (de jure) del BCRP así como sus componentes (independencia económica e independencia política) en comparación con los índices de otros países de la región y de la OECD. Adicionalmente, en línea con Cukierman (2007), se construye un índice de independencia efectiva (IIE) del BCRP (1994- 2007) el cual diverge del índice de independencia legal. Los resultados son los siguientes: En general, los índices de independencia legal reportan una mejora importante a partir de los 90´s en el Perú y las economías de la región. En el caso peruano, la mejora en el índice ha sido liderada principalmente por la mayor independencia económica. A pesar de que la independencia legal no ha cambiado desde el año 1993, la adopción del régimen de metas explícitas de inflación desde el año 2002, el uso de la tasa de interés de referencia como instrumento de política y una política fiscal menos pro-cíclica, han contribuido a alcanzar un mayor índice de independencia efectiva entre los años 1998 y 2007. La mayor independencia efectiva del BCRP es un elemento adicional que sustenta el éxito del BCRP en mantener inflaciones bajas, consistente con su objetivo de preservar la estabilidad de precios.
