    Abstract

    Our aim in this paper is to investigate in econometric terms the determinants of mark up in the Brazilian industrial firms in the 1990s. Several regressions using panel data were tested to describe the behavior of the mark up of industrial firms. All models considered microeconomic and macroeconomic variables. A negative relation was found between demand variation and mark up variation, suggesting that it evolved in an anticyclic way. This behavior is explained based on the increase degree of uncertainty that surrounded changes in the macroeconomic scenario in the 1990s..
