Welfare Aspects of Technological Adoption with Learning

  • Magnac, T.
  • Verdier, T.

Cet article traite des implications en terme de bien-être de l'adoption d'une nouvelle technologie dans le cas où celle-ci est caractérisée par des coûts d'adaptation et des effets d'"apprentissage localisé". Un modèle à deux périodes est construit pour représenter le "jeu d'adoption" entre firmes dans un cadre duopolistique. Les règles socialement optimales d'adoption sont comparées avec les règles privées qui se forment en tant qu'équilibres du jeu. Il est montré que les différences entre les deux types sont dues d'abord à la forme de la fonction de demande du produit vendu sur le marché duopolistique et en second lieu aux effets d'interaction stratégique entre les entreprises adoptantes.
