En el presente documento se estudia la concentración de mercado en República Dominicana medida a través del Índice Herfindahl-Hirschman (IHH). Para este fin se utilizó la información de las declaraciones juradas de 254,345 contribuyentes de la Administración Tributaria los cuales se agruparon en 46 mercados o actividades económicas. Los resultados muestran que 43% de los mercados se agrupan en la escala alta y moderada de concentración según los estándares internacionales. Adicionalmente, los resultados sugieren que existe una correlación positiva entre el IHH y la rentabilidad, es decir, a mayor concentración de mercado se observa una mayor rentabilidad de la actividad económica.

The Global Competitiveness Report 2014–2015 is being launched at a time when the global economy seems to be finally leaving behind the worst and longest- lasting financial and economic crisis of the last 80 years. However, this resurgence is moving at a less decisive pace than it has after previous downturns, and heightened risks looming on the horizon could derail the global recovery. Much of the growth in recent years has taken place because of the extraordinary and bold monetary policies in countries such as the United States, Japan, and the United Kingdom. As the economy improves in these countries, a normalization of monetary policy with tightening financial conditions could have an impact on both advanced and emerging economies.

Moreover, the strained geopolitical scenarios with rising tensions in a number of regions can also have negative consequences for the global economic outlook. Finally, many countries are suffering from accelerating income inequalities; often these inequalities are lasting effects of the crisis that are creating domestic social tensions with potential global consequences.
