Competencia política, eficiencia gubernamental, tamaño del gobierno

Resumen


Este artículo presenta un modelo espacial de competencia política para analizar el efecto que tiene la competencia política sobre el desempeño gubernamental, en el sentido de la eficiencia del nivel de empleo burocrático y en la provisión de bienes públicos. En contraste con otros argumentos que relacionan positivamente la competencia política y la eficiencia del gobierno, el principal resultado muestra que en cualquier equilibrio político-económico la competencia política genera incentivos para un nivel de empleo burocrático excesivo y una provisión ineficiente de bienes públicos.
