Information et économie publique

  • Jean-Jacques Laffont

[eng] Information and public economics by Jean- Jacques Laffont Taking into account operators' strategic behaviour in response to their private information and the inefficiencies in public decision-making due to the operations of interest groups leads to a more realistic vision of State intervention. Taking four examples - the regulation of natural monopolies, public purchasing policies, the production of public goods and the economics of the environment, the author illustrates the main stages of this new methodology in the field of public economics. [fre] Information et économie publique par Jean- Jacques Laffont La prise en compte du comportement stratégique des acteurs vis-à-vis de leur information privée et des inefficacités de la décision publique dues au jeu des groupes d'intérêt a conduit à une vision plus réaliste de l'intervention de l'État. Sur quatre exemples, la régulation des monopoles naturels, les politiques publiques d'achat, la production de biens publics et l'économie de l'environnement, l'auteur illustre les grandes étapes de cette méthodologie nouvelle de l'économie publique.
