Eficiencia Productiva y Asignación de Cuotas de Pesca en Chile: Teorema de Coase y Asimetrías de Información

Author

Abstract

Este trabajo analiza el criterio de asignación inicial de las cuotas individuales de pesca, encontrando que la asignación mediante una subasta garantiza la eficiencia productiva, logro que no puede ser asegurado si se opta por una asignación de acuerdo a criterios históricos. El argumento central es que el Teorema de Coase es inapropiado ante asimetrías de información. Así, una aplicación directa del Teorema de Myerson-Satterthwaite plantea que la asignación inicial sí importa para el resultado que posteriormente surja en una negociación bilateral, aun con costos de transacción bajos o nulos, generándose un sesgo en la asignación final hacia quien tiene el derecho de propiedad inicial; éste será quien retendrá una proporción mayor que lo eficiente del bien. Por lo tanto, resulta de primer orden de importancia que la asignación inicial sea eficiente, lo que puede ser logrado con una subasta de las cuotas de pesca.
