Luchando Infructuosamente contra la Hidra: Un Modelo Sencillo del Narcotráfico


  • Carlos Humberto Ortiz Q



En este artículo se construye un modelo sencillo del narcotráfico que contribuye a explicar dos características notables de esta actividad: la generación de ganancias extraordinarias y la gran capacidad de reproducción en condiciones de prohibición y represión. El modelo establece una relación directa entre la represión a la oferta, la cual ha sido la principal estrategia en la lucha contra el narcotráfico, y las características mencionadas.
