[Privatizations are synonymous with economic efficiency?: Reflection on the argentine case]


  • Mauricio, Canziani


During the 1990S Argentina implemented a profound process of transferring to private capital of public enterprises and strategic areas that historically had remained under the ownership and management of the national State. These privatizations has as target the promotion of economic efficiency of the companies subject to privatization and, therefore, the overall economy. However, the privatizations were mostly of public services operating in markets are not competitive enough, therefore the degree of economic efficiency is more conditioned by the own competence and regulating that by the ownership private or public of the company.
