Abstract

Este documento presenta algunos fundamentos teóricos que subyacen en el análisis de bienestar que puede establecerse en aras de cuantificar el impacto sobre el consumidor cuando un agente infringe los derechos del comprador, lo cual pueden traducirse en un incremento en los precios. El ejercicio permite concluir que siempre que pueda reconocerse algún grado de sustituibilidad imperfecta entre los bienes y servicios, susceptibles de ser elegidos por el consumidor, la variación equivalente y compensada serán una sobreestimación y una subestimación, respectivamente, del cambio en el excedente del consumidor. En el caso de bienes complementarios y sustitutos perfectos las medidas de medición de bienestar propuestas no son adecuadas.
