Frame of Image G POLICIES: ON THE WRONG PATH TO PEACE By Hernán Maldonado Jaramillo
This paper identifies the policies that may reduce the drug rents going from the drug business to illegal groups in Colombia. The study analyzes the actual situation on drug policies and shows why a drug prohibition is the observed political outcome on the international political arena. To analyze the international drug policy a gravity model based on Akerlof 1997 is implemented recreating an international game which shows that drug prohibition is a stable suboptimal policy. Finally, this work suggests some ways of playing the game that could offer to Colombia the possibility of moving towards a politically less restrictive environment on drug policy issues. A situation that might reduce rents obtained from the drug business by the illegal groups and the intensity of the conflict. Key words: Drugs rents, Gravity model, Colombia, Conflict resolution. JEL Classification: F42, K42, O54.
