dc.description.abstract This paper studies the cycles of investment and expropriation in the context of the Latin American oil sector. In particular, it provides an explanationfor the state´s difficulties in capturing the oil rents and rationalizes the tendencyof governments to periodically renege on their prior agreements pursuingthe quasi-rents. The paper does not try to provide a general proposal forthe right fiscal and contractual structure, however, as the right structure mustbe tailored to each country. en
