Abstract

type="main" xml:lang="fr"> Dans le présent article, nous élaborons un modèle de statique comparative pour étudier les effets que le durcissement de la réglementation environnementale fondé sur la taille d'une l'exploitation a sur l’équilibre à long terme de l'industrie porcine et nous appliquons le modèle à l'industrie porcine étatsunienne. Selon le modèle économique, lorsque le durcissement de la réglementation est fondé sur la taille de l'exploitation et qu'il affecte la taille des exploitations, les grandes exploitations diminuent leur taille, prennent de l'expansion ou ne font ni l'un ni l'autre selon les effets qu'a le durcissement de la réglementation environnementale sur leurs coûts marginal et moyen de production. Des tests empiriques effectués à l'aide de données sur les dix principaux États producteurs de porcs autorisent à penser que le durcissement de la réglementation environnementale entraîne des répercussions limitées sur les petites exploitations agricoles et une diminution du nombre de grandes exploitations. Nous ne pouvons rejeter l'effet positif du durcissement de la réglementation environnementale sur la taille des exploitations.
