Abstract

Research on political economy has focused on the study of the legislative markets. This article analyses the industrial organization of the Congress in Spain from a new institutional economics approach. In this way, we realize an analysis of madisonian political economy that studies the role of property rights, hierarchies, individual deputies, parliamentary groups, transactions and committees in the Spanish Congress. In particular, this analysis, that is a heiress of the coasean tradition of “opening the black box” of organizations, shows the main characteristics that differentiate the Spanish model of the one that exists in the USA Congress, which is presented as the prototype of Committees Congress in the specialized literature.// Las reglas que organizan la estructura del legislativo afectan al comportamiento de sus miembros, la elección pública y los fundamentos políticos de una economía. El estudio de los mercados legislativos ha sido una constante en la investigación en economía política a lo largo de los decenios recientes. Este artículo analiza la organización industrial del Congreso de Diputados en España desde un enfoque propio de la nueva economía institucional. De este modo, se realiza un análisis de economía política madisoniana que estudia el papel de los derechos de propiedad, las jerarquías, los diputados individuales, los grupos parlamentarios, las transacciones y las comisiones en el Congreso español. En particular, este análisis, heredero de la tradición coaseana de “abrir la caja negra” de las organizaciones, evidencia las grandes caracteristicas que diferencian al sistema español del existente en el Congreso de Estados Unidos, el cual aparece en la bibliografía especializada como prototipo de Congreso de Comisiones.
