Rentas monopolísticas en el sistema de precios


  • Homero Cuevas

    (Universidad Nacional de Colombia)


This paper seeks to point out and to correct some mistakes of the conventional theory of imperfect competition based on partial equilibrium analysis. It extends to imperfect competition the classical model of general equilibrium, signaling the interconnections between individual prices and between these and macroeconomic aggregates.
