The black market in drug cartels: estimating a game theoretic model for cocaine
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis develops a game theoretical model of the behaviour in the black markets involving drug cartels, and explicitly models the illicit market for cocaine using Colombia as reference to a producer country. It adopts and modifies the previous theoretic framework established in Mejia and Restrepo (2009) to account for a dictator setting in which drug cartels are in complete control of all factors of production and trafficking.
