    Abstract

    Este artículo revisa los principales argumentos que la Economía pone a disposición del analista a la hora de juzgar las políticas de control del tabaquismo, y describe con detalle la cuestión de los fallos de mercado tanto desde la óptica tradicional como desde la perspectiva de los recientes avances en la literatura. De esta revisión se desprende que fumar es una elección personal que puede generar pérdidas netas de bienestar para el resto de miembros de la sociedad y para la familia del fumador, pero, sobre todo, para el propio fumador. Sobre esta base existe justificación económica para intervenciones correctoras. El artículo concluye con una discusión de dos de las medidas de prevención más relevantes en la actualidad española: la prohibición de fumar en los locales de hostelería y los impuestos sobre las labores del tabaco.
