Efectos sobre el bienestar social de las empresas con poder de mercado en México


  • Urzúa, Carlos M.

    () (Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Ciudad de México)


This paper shows that the individual welfare losses due to the exercise of market power in the service sectors are greater in relative terms for the consumers with higher incomes. However, after adding to those results the ones obtained for the case of consumer goods sold in non-competitive markets, the total welfare loss becomes relatively greater among the poorest consumers, as well as in the case of the most backward states.
