Abstract

Selon Arrow (1962), face à une innovation de procédé (réductrice de coût) une firme monopolistique subit l'effet de remplacement à savoir que la valeur qu'elle lui accorde est sous optimale et inférieure à la valeur de compétition technologique du brevet qui lui correspond. Nous transposons cette problématique dans le cadre d'une économie exploitant une ressource épuisable. En considérant les incitations à innover immédiatement, on peut alors montrer que le résultat de sous-incitation du monopole n'est pas toujours vérifié et parfois même se renverse : le monopole minier exhibe une propension à ne pas « s'endormir sur ses lauriers » lorsque la demande de la ressource présente une élasticité « fortement » croissante. En élargissant le résultat au cas des incitations dynamiques, nous montrons que le monopole adopte parfois plus vite l'innovation que la firme en concurrence.
