BROWN DEL RIVERO, Alfonso and BACARIA COLOM, Jordi. The economic integration and competitiveness in the electric sector: case analysis in Latin-America. Latinoamérica [online]. 2010, n.51, pp. 37-61. ISSN 1665-8574.
In this article we analyze the relation between the processes of reform and liberalization electric power supply industry initiated in the eighties and its relationship with different models of Latin American integration. We also contrast the configuration of markets and reform experiences in Argentina, Chile and Mexico to Spain. The conclusion is that the processes of reform and liberalization are closely correlated with economic integration, and for it to be deeper, requires the existence of supranational institutions that dictate policies of competition and free movement of capitals at the same time they monitor its compliance.
