Irréversibilité et financement des infrastructures par les fonds propres

Abstract

[eng] Infrastructure investments generate highly nonredeployable assets. Following Williamson, equity would be in this case the appropriate financial instrument. This article provides a microeconomic discussion of the use of equity as opposed to debt, using the concept of irreversibility. [fre] Les infrastructures constituent largement des actifs non redéployables, au sens de Williamson. À ce titre, le mode de financement qui devrait leur être asso­cié est l'appel aux fonds propres. L'article justifie et nuance cette proposition, au plan microéconomique, en s'appuyant sur l'irréversibilité des décisions correspon­dantes.
