Effets d'éviction ou de renforcement des politiques publiques à destination de l'économie sociale. Une analyse de Montréal


  • Damien Rousselière
  • Marie J. Bouchard


The financing of public goods through public policies, private donations or sales is a debate that currently strongly affects the social economy. Empirical studies are tempered regarding the relation between these different types of resources (crowding in or crowding out effect). Using a multivariate model selection (also called “generalized Heckman”) that meets econometric challenges, we show, with data from an original survey on the social economy of Montreal, that one dollar of public subsidy (or 1% increase) results in an increase of 10 cents of sales (0.15% increase). Classification JEL : C34 ; D04 ; L31 ; P13
