    Los controles de precios son medidas que pueden afectar considerablemente a los sectores sujetos a dichas políticas. Mediante un modelo de equilibrio general dinámico estocástico con dos tipos de agentes: campesinos y citadinos, calibrado para Bolivia, se muestra que, ante caídas en la productividad del sector agropecuario, el empleo rural agropecuario y la producción agropecuaria se ven mermadas cuando existen controles de precios. Asimismo, mejoras de productividad en el sector rural no agropecuario representan menores ganancias con precios fijos en relación a un mecanismo que permita que los precios se ajusten. En una simulación de las políticas realizadas en 2009 en Bolivia se encuentra que éstas generan desequilibrios en los mercados, provocando escasez de los productos agropecuarios en magnitudes considerables.
