Abstract

El propósito de este trabajo es el de determinar cuánto vale el español, es decir, cuánto potencia esta lengua común, si es que lo hace, los intercambios internacionales. Para ello se plantea un modelo gravitatorio con datos de panel que recoge, junto a las variables habituales de estos modelos y las específicamente referidas a los factores culturales (y la lengua en particular) e institucionales, los flujos bilaterales de comercio entre 51 países para el período 1996-2004. Se concluye, en la más prudente de las estimaciones, que los países que comparten el español como lengua común comercian casi un 290 por 100 más en virtud de este hecho, efecto que resulta ser, incluso, más intenso que el detectado para los países de habla inglesa.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

The aim of this paper is to estimate how much worthy is Spanish language, that is, how much this common language promotes international trade. In order to quantify its economic effects, it is implemented a gravity model with panel data that collects bilateral trade flows between 51 countries for the period 1996-2004. In addition to the basic variables of these models, the equation incorporates both cultural and institutional determinants. It carefully concludes that countries sharing Spanish as a common language trade almost 290 for 100 more among themselves than with other countries. This language coefficient is even more intensive than in the case of English speaking countries.
