  • Isidro Hernández



Una visión panorámica del proceso de privatización colombiana, en el análisiscomparado, muestra por lo menos dos características que lo distinguen de otrosprocesos. La primera, el sector empresarial y la clase política sostienen unarelación estrecha de manera que las decisiones de política y la gestión públicaestán impregnadas por los intereses privados aún antes de proceder a privatizar.Y la segunda, a diferencia de otras experiencias latinoaméricanas, el procesopolítico y el tipo de organizaciones, permitió que el cambio fuera ordenado, condefinición de unos objetivos y unas responsabilidades especificas.__________ABSTRACTA panoramic vision of hte Colombian process of privatization, in the comparedanálisis, show at least two characteristics that distinguís it of other proceses.First, the enterprise sector and the political class maintain a close relationship sothat the decisions of policy and the public management are impregnated by theprivate interests still before coming to privatize.
