  • Martin Dutto
  • Marcos Gallacher


El objetivo de este trabajo es describir mecanismos incorporados en los contratos de construcción de obras que sirven para disminuir los costos de transacción. Se analizan las soluciones a los problemas contractuales propios de esta actividad, en particular a aquellos originados en la especificidad de los activos y en la racionalidad limitada. Los conceptos teóricos empleados se utilizan para comprender la lógica económica de un caso real de contratación de obra pública.
