Abstract

En este documento se estudian los determinantes de la heterogeneidad observada en laflexibilidad de precios, empleando los resultados encontrados en una encuesta directa por Misaset al. (2009). Para esto se utilizan los modelos de conteo y se diseñan e implementan unconjunto de pruebas de especificación y de selección de modelos que garantizan una correctainferencia estadística. En términos generales, los determinantes más significativos a la hora deexplicar el grado de flexibilidad de los precios, son las características del producto, los acuerdoscontractuales y el sector económico al que pertenece la firma. Por su parte, técnicas demercadeo, como la posibilidad de discriminar precios entre compradores, son menossignificativas. También se encuentra que la existencia de leyes o decretos administrativos, laexistencia de líderes en precios y los movimientos de costos no explican la heterogeneidad en elproceso de fijación de los precios.
