Planificación y priorización ex ante de la inversión pública en los países andinos
El presente documento desarrolla un análisis profundo de los procesos e instrumentos de planificación y priorización del gasto de inversión pública en Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador y Perú. Para tal fin, sobre la base de los hallazgos de trabajos anteriores, se definió una metodología, que incluyó el diseño de una encuesta para recopilar información en cada uno de los países y evaluar los procesos e instrumentos de planificación y priorización de la inversión pública. Adicionalmente, se realizaron misiones a los distintos países con el fin de recoger información cualitativa mediante entrevistas a funcionarios sobre los respectivos SNIP. De esta manera, este trabajo presenta los principales hallazgos y plantea un conjunto de recomendaciones para fortalecer la planificación y priorización en los SNIP de los países andinos, con el fin de generar una mayor eficiencia en la gestión de la inversión pública.

Fiscal Rule and Public Investment in Chile
This paper reviews the design and operation of the Chilean fiscal rule in the past 30 years. Using different empirical approaches, we assess its impact on fiscal procyclicality, public debt, and public investment. While there has been substantial progress in building a modern institutional framework for fiscal policy, we find that the rule is incomplete in two dimensions: it lacks an escape clause, and it needs to supplement the budget balance rule with a debt rule. The former is seen in the pervasive inability of the authorities to steer fiscal accounts back to their long-term sustainable path after the rule was breached the rule in 2009. The latter issue is illustrated by the speedy build-up of the public debt as a result of the need to finance fiscal deficits. We do not find, nevertheless, a negative impact of the rule on public investment. We propose reforms to improve on transparency and accountability, as well as to supplement the rule with escape clauses and a debt anchor.
