Abstract

La privatización generalmente es motivada por los gobiernos debido al factor eficiencia. En este caso analizamos los efectos de la privatización en la eficiencia de Iberia entre 1984- 2004. Hemos realizado un análisis factorial que combina indicadores de eficiencia financiera y productiva. Los resultados muestran que no hay diferencias significativas entre medias para los períodos pre y post privatización. Al utilizar esta metodología, nuestros hallazgos muestran que la rentabilidad –por sí sola- no es un buen parámetro para medir la eficiencia de una empresa a través del tiempo en un análisis comparativo, ya que la eficiencia viene propiamente representada por la productividad (relación output/input). Los resultados sugieren que la pertenencia de una empresa a un sector desregulado y con una permanente turbulencia sectorial y de mercado influye en su eficiencia económica antes, durante y después de su privatización. El estudio no permite afirmar el supuesto básico de la Teoría de los Derechos de Propiedad: la empresa privada es más eficiente que la empresa pública..
