Abstract

Dans un modele a deux periodes on peut considerer que l'aide a l'etranger peut-etre definie soit en terme d'un bien a consommer soit en terme de controle des naissances. La taille de la population en deuxieme periode est endogene. Nous examinons l'affectation optimale de cette ressource rare en employant une famille de principes ethiques regroupes sous le terme de l'utilitarisme d'un niveau critique. Deux variantes du meme modele sont discutees: la production exogene et la production endogene. Les resultats indiquent que la reponse ethique du niveau de la population par raport au cout du controle des naissnaces et par rapport a l'importance de l'aide a l'etranger depend du rapport entre le niveau critique et le niveau de bien-etre de la population.
