Relation verticale et régulation. Le problème des biens intermédiaires

  • François Boldron
  • Cyril Hariton

[fre] Cet article montre qu'un régulateur ne doit pas réguler une industrie nécessitant un bien intermédiaire essentiel non régulé et vendu par un tarif binôme. En effet, le régulateur maximisant le bien-être social sous contrainte budgétaire, il attribue une valeur plus importante à la production du bien final que le producteur lui-même. De plus, ce régulateur a accès à des fonds plus importants que le producteur grâce aux profits possibles de l'ensemble des activités régulées. [eng] Regulation and unregulated essential facility. . This paper shows that a regulator should not regulate a final product which industry is characterized by the need of an unregulated essential facility sold through non-linear tariffs. Two main reasons drive this result. First, the regulator maximizes social welfare and values more the final good production than the producer itself. Second, the regulator has access to an extra source of financing with the profits of the whole regulated sector.
