A Smithian Analysis of the Colombian Economic Growth

Publicado en

  • Ensayos Sobre Política Económica


  • Statistical analyses show that, after controlling for the accumulation of productive factors, the joint effect of the diversification of manufacturing inputs and the urban population purchasing power has a positive and significant impact on the Colombian economic growth. Furthermore, there is statistical evidence that shortages or deficiencies of public infrastructure and public services, as well as the violations of property rights diminish economic growth. These results are consistent with the Smithian vision of economic development. © 2016 Banco de la República de Colombia.
