Abstract

Neste artigo é usado um modelo de equilÌbrio geral para investigar os impactos sobre as alocações de longo prazo e os custos de bem estar proporcionados por uma polÌtica de privatização da infra-estrutura pública. A economia que se está modelando é composta de dois tipos de capital, um inerentemente privado e um outro com caracterÌsticas de bens públicos (denominado infra-estrutura), o qual é ofertado tanto pelo setor público quanto privado. Admitindo-se que este segundo tipo de capital gera efeitos externos positivos, a oferta pública de infra-estrutura, em geral, melhora a alocação descentralizada desta economia. Porém, supondo que os impostos que financiam esta oferta distorcem as decisões dos agentes, deprimindo o nível de bem estar, a privatização da infra-estrutura pública pode ser uma política satisfatória do ponto de vista social. As simulações indicam que, os custos ou benefícios desta política dependem, fortemente, de duas características da infraestrutura privada, anteriores à privatização: a sua qualidade e quantidade. E, que, além disso, a possibilidade de regulação da qualidade do estoque privado de infra-estrutura, após a privatização, pode fazer com que o benefício social da privatização seja bastante significativo.
