Utilizando un modelo de equilibrio general computable y aplicando una microsimulación sobre la Encuesta MECOVI del año 2007, el documento muestra que la inversión pública tiene un efecto positivo sobre la reducción de la pobreza en escenarios de inversión moderada, inversión actual e inversión alta. No obstante, la reducción de la pobreza no es muy significativa. Los resultados más importantes se evidencian en el índice de recuento que se reduce alrededor de 3 puntos en un escenario de alta intervención y de 2 puntos en un escenario de inversión como el actual. Sin embargo, los resultados obtenidos para los indicadores de brecha y severidad de pobreza son más modestos.
