Resumen

El objetivo de esta investigación es evaluar el efecto del capital humano y el consumo de energía eléctrica en el crecimiento económico. Utilizamos datos de panel de las bases de Barro y Lee (2016) y del Banco Mundial (2017). Utilizamos la prueba de cointegración de Pedroni (1999) y Westerlund (2007) para encontrar el equilibrio y las pruebas de Dumitrescu y Hurlin (2012) para verificar la dirección de la causalidad entre las series. En segundo lugar, estimamos la fuerza del vector de cointegración para países de manera individual, a través de un modelo DOLS. Para grupos de países utilizamos un modelo PDOLS. Los resultados encontrados indican la existencia de un equilibrio a corto y largo plazo entre las variables a nivel mundial y por grupos de países. Existe una causalidad unidireccional del consumo de energía al crecimiento económico, en todos los grupos de países excepto lo de ingresos altos y extremadamente altos. La causalidad del capital humano al crecimiento solo existe en los países de ingresos bajos. Las implicaciones de las políticas sugieren que el estado debe buscar e impulsar la implementación de nuevas fuentes de generación de energía, debido a su fuerte relación al crecimiento
