Coûts de transaction et croissance : un modèle à partir de la situation de la France du XVIIIe siècle

  • Guillaume Daudin

[fre] Cet article construit un modèle de croissance graduelle reposant sur l'extension de l'activité commerciale. La modélisation est ancrée dans la situation de la France du XVIIIe siècle. L'article étudie d'abord le caractère rural de la croissance de la production et propose une modélisation des choix de production par les ruraux dans un cadre à deux types de biens. Il étudie ensuite l'importance du rôle des intermédiaires commerciaux et propose de traiter leurs capacités à assurer les échanges comme un capital spécifique. Cela lui permet finalement de construire un modèle de croissance graduelle analogue au modèle de Ramsey. [eng] This paper presents a model of gradual growth through the extension of trading activity. The model is based on the study of France in the 18th century. The paper first argues that production was mainly rural : it proffers a model of production choice by rural workers between two different goods. Then, the paper underlines the importance of trade intermediaries and suggests to treat their transaction capacity as a specific capital. These hypotheses allow the paper to build a gradual growth model similar to Ramsey's model.
