Abstract

En este artículo se estudia la privatización de un grupo de bancos públicos provinciales en Argentina en 1993-2001. En contraste con la mayoría de los estudios previos sobre privatizaciones que analizaron principalmente sus efectos sobre la eficiencia económica, este estudio se enfoca en dos cuestioness: i) evaluar si la privatización de los bancos públicos provinciales produjo un incremento en el uso del poder de mercado por parte de aquellos bancos públicos provinciales privatizados y ii) verificar si los bancos públicos provinciales privatizados incrementaron su eficiencia económica despues de su privatización, medida por una re- ducción en sus costos operativos. La evidencia empírica permite sostener las dos cuestiones planteadas.
