Las políticas públicas y las cooperativas


  • Rafael Chaves

    (Universidad de Valencia y CIRIEC-España)


This paper aims to address the theoretical basis of public policies related to cooperatives and to social economy in general. To this end, strong justifications are found in the economic theory of market and institutional failures and externalities. On the other hand, it assesses and classifies the objects and instruments available. This paper also seeks to analyse and assess the deployment in Spain of two groups of public policies aimed at cooperatives: the first is of an institutional nature for evaluating the participation of cooperatives on the policy-making organs and the second, of structural nature, is aimed at boosting business competitiveness.
