El manejo del gasto público y la protección social: el caso uruguayo en el siglo XX
This article discusses the public expenditure management in Uruguay between 1910 and 2000, in relation to the government resources oriented to social protection. It considers the domestic long run income-elasticity of the public expenditure. Then, it studies the cyclical performance of the total and social public expenditure in order to determine whether the country has “protected” its social spending in times of cyclical downturns and fiscal constraints. Taking historic stages corresponding to different fiscal regimes during the period it concludes that, despite the traditional focus of public policy on social protection, the fiscal management has not been especially attentive to stabilize the social public expenditure.
