El sector de la energia. Dinàmiques d'una corrupció controlada

Alfons Pérez

Resum


The present article aims to characterize and visualize the fraudulent practices within the energy sector in three different areas: geopolitical relations, liberalization of markets and the bond between politicians and the power held by corporations. The article contains documented cases that demonstrate the patent and latent risk of corruption by the high concentration of power in the energy sector. Moreover, these cases are part of a general dynamic that prioritizes the achievement of energy resources and the obtained benefits from legitimizing, nurturing and even promoting controlled corruption, namely that kind of predictable corruption that the economic system can assimilate under the control of elites.
