[fre] La diffusion d'une nouvelle technique dépend de ses caractéristiques en termes de profitabilité et de performance technique mais aussi des conditions générales d'investissement. L'article a pour objet d'expliciter de quelle manière les schémas de diffusion sont le résultat combiné des comportements d'investissement et des processus d'apprentissage en matière d'équipements modernes. Des hypothèses simples sur les facteurs agissant sur la décision d'opter pour un équipement moderne, dans un contexte de rationalité limitée, conduisent à des estimations économétriques pour les secteurs textiles d'un ensemble de 16 pays. [eng] The diffusion of a new technology of production depends on both its own characteristics in terms of profit and technical capabilities and the general conditions for investment. This paper aims to explicit how diffusion processes are the combined result of investment behaviours and learning processes concerning the new equipments. Simple assumptions on the key factors relevant to opt for modern equipement, when investing, in a world of bounded rationality, lead to estimations in the case of the textile industry in a set of 16 countries.
