Resumen

El presente documento, al igual que Sequeira y Rodrigues (2009), destaca la importancia del capital humano, más que el de capital social. Las estimaciones a través de modelos de datos panel balanceados, utilizando mínimos cuadrados generalizados, demuestran la significancia estadística que tiene la esperanza de vida al nacer en la determinación del ingreso per cápita de los países sudamericanos, siendo incluso sus elasticidades mayores que el de la formación bruta de capital. Por otra parte, se ha podido determinar la pobreza en los rendimientos de las variables de capital social (democracia y corrupción) sobre el ingreso per cápita, a pesar de ser altamente significativas. Finalmente, se muestra evidencia de interacciones entre capital humano y social con retornos sumamente bajos.

Palabras clave: Ingreso per cápita, Salud, Democracia, Corrupción.
