Abstract

El presente trabajo es una revisión de los principales modelos microeconómicos que han analizado el problema de la ineficiencia X en organizaciones burocráticas. A partir del trabajo seminal de Niskanen, que parte del supuesto de que existe eficiencia productiva en las organizaciones burocráticas, analizamos posteriores trabajos que modifican los supuestos iniciales de Niskanen con el objetivo de explicar la existencia de ineficiencia X en las agencias burocráticas. La conclusión a la que llegamos es que en estas organizaciones pueden existir objetivos no coherentes con la idea de eficiencia productiva. Así, para cada modelo, analizamos las implicaciones que tal comportamiento tiene sobre la ineficiencia X. Classification-JEL : D21; D73; H32.
