Sécurité environnementale et sanitaire : les biens controversés


Author Info

  • Sylvie Lupton


[eng] Environmental and health impacts : controversial goods - Scientific controversies concerning environmental and health impacts of a good leads us to revisit the nature and status of quality uncertainty on goods' characteristics in economics. Up to now, three types of goods have been established : experience goods, search goods, and credence goods. Quality uncertainty shared by all agents in a market allows us to propose a new class of goods : controversial goods. [fre] La prise en compte de controverses scientifiques concernant les répercussions sanitaires et environnementales d'un bien suscite une nouvelle réflexion sur la nature et le statut de l'incertitude qualitative des biens en économie. Jusqu'à présent, trois classes de biens ont été établies : les biens d'expérience, de recherche et de croyance. L'incertitude qualitative d'un bien, partagée par tous les acteurs d'un marché, permet de proposer une nouvelle classe de biens : les biens controversés.
