Institutional reforms in Colombia

Alberto Alesina

Working Papers Series. Documentos de Trabajo from Fedesarrollo

Abstract: This document is organized around "political" and "economic" institutions. We begin with the former, with a discussion of the role of the judicial system and of the separation of power followed by the electoral law and structure of parliament, and a discussion of crime prevention and criminal justice system. We then move to economic institutions, we focus on those that have to do with the bureaucracy and provision of social services, monetary and fiscal institutions, namely the Central Bank, the budget process and, especially important, the local/central government relationships.
