    (University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras)


The evolution of the economy of Puerto Rico has been characterized by a long period of economic instability, decelerating therefore the economic activity, in most of the studied years. For such reason, in this work, by means of the creation of binary choice models, the factors that affect the possibility of an economic deceleration, for the case of Puerto Rico were analyzed. According to the results, the coordination, creation, conduction and instrumentation of the establishment of an objective of economic policy and to obtain the greater possible transparency in the processes, in spite of the existing limitations, are fundamental for the well-being of the Island (Key Words: Quantitative Methods, Economic Policy, Economic Growth).
