Crecimiento económico, pobreza y desigualdad: Un análisis de eficiencia para américa latina en el siglo XXI
Journal:
47 - 2017
Author(s):
Alfonso Expósito, José Fernández-Serrano y Francisco Velasco
Abstract:
Este estudio analiza la capacidad de los modelos económicos para generar un “eficiente” crecimiento económico que reduzca los niveles de pobreza y mejore la distribución de la riqueza generada como resultado de ese crecimiento. Para ello, aplicaremos un método de optimización basado en el Análisis Envolvente de Datos a una muestra de países latinoamericanos en el que se ha ampliado el problema de optimización con la incorporación de productos con una connotación negativa o no deseable.

Foreign Trade of Capital Goods in the United States: A Persistent Deterioration
Journal:
47 - 2017
Author(s):
Julio Goicoechea
Abstract:
Foreign trade of capital goods in the United States from 1994 to 2016 is specifically examined. A lagging performance of exports vis-à-vis imports in terms of magnitude, growth rate as well as price reductions has led to the current deficit. Domestic industrial output is a determining factor in the extent of foreign trade of capital goods. It exposes very large coefficients in the long term for exports (2.89), as well as for imports (4.34).

Journal:
47 - 2017
Author(s):
Manuela Prieto Rodríguez
Abstract:
La crisis económica de 2007 tuvo unos efectos devastadores sobre el empleo en la mayoría de los países desarrollados. No obstante, la intensidad de estos efectos y su persistencia no fueron iguales en todos ellos. La falta de movilidad geográfica de la mano de obra es uno de los factores que podrían explicar estas diferencias.
