Environnement Institutionnel, Modes Organisationnels Et Performances Productives : Une Analyse Des Grandes Fermes Moldaves Au Début De La Transition


  • Daniela BORODAK

    () (ESC Clermont)


The empirical analysis of the relations between institutional environment and organisational modes and how they affect productive performances, is relatively rare in literature, due to a lack of data. This article is an attempt at developing an empirical methodology which could shed light on the nature of these relations, using data related to large farms during the privatization of state and collective farms in Moldavia (1991-1997). In the first part, the transformation process of the organisational modes in these large farms, which were formerly state or collectively owned, is given a new institutional interpretation. In the second part of this article we develop an empirical methodology in order to analyse the interaction between the choice of one of the new organisational modes and the farmer’s productive performances. This is based on the estimation of the farms’ technical efficiency, using the stochastic frontier model by Battese and Coelli (1995). With this model it is possible to take into account the influence of the organisational modes on the production process, through the endogenous specification of forms of organisation (with the estimation of a nested logit model).
