Abstract

ORTIZ, Carlos Humberto. LUCHANDO INFRUCTUOSAMENTE CONTRA LA HIDRA: UN MODELO SENCILLO DEL NARCOTRÁFICO. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2002, vol.21, n.37, pp.139-159. ISSN 0121-4772.

A simple model of drug trafficking, which embodies this activity risks, is shown in this paper. The model helps to explain two stylized facts of this activity: the generation of extraordinary profits and strong reproduction ability under prohibition and repression. The model creates a direct link between the repression of supply, which has been the dominant strategy in the fight against drug trafficking, and the mentioned facts.

Keywords : drug trafficking; repression of supply; expected profit; violence.
