[Regulation of inter-capitalist competente. The case of supermarkets]


  • Viego, Valentina


The growing portion of total sales in retailing sector (food and beverage, electronics, home appliances, etc.) gained by big companies was subject of concern between politicians, scholars and population. In food market, some studies estimated that between 1984-1993 supermarkets created 1 of each 6 employments destroyed in traditional segment. By late 90s the fraction of smaller retailers claimed for the adoption of laws restricting big capital expansion in the sector. Buenos Aires province was pioneer in such regulatory movement. This paper analyses competence phase in retailing sector, regulatory effectiveness and other impacts of big commercial establishments not considered in competence laws.
