Les sources d’(in)efficacité des boycotts de consommateurs : L’approche par l’analyse économique

  • Philippe Delacote

L’usage fréquent et répété de boycotts de consommateurs par un certain nombre d’acteurs de la protection environnementale et de la société civile conduit à s’interroger sur les chances réelles d’efficacité de cet outil. Croisant des éléments d’analyse économique des comportements et de théorie des jeux, nous proposons de distinguer les sources majeures d’inefficacité de ce type d’actions, et notamment, la faiblesse de la coordination entre acteurs, la présence potentiellement massive de passagers clandestins, les caractéristiques des marchés les caractéristiques des marchés et des technologies alternatives, etc. Ces travaux permettent de dégager des pistes de réflexion sur l’efficacité relative de la consommation citoyenne. Nous illustrons notre propos par l’exemple de l’exploitation de bois tropicaux.
