Abstract

Cet article propose une interprétation des résultats obtenus par les expérimentations sur les marchés à prix affichés à travers une grille de lecture donnée par l’existence ou la non-existence d’un équilibre de Nash dans la structure de marché qui sert de base aux expérimentations. Nous montrons que, d’une part, les premières expérimentations réalisées n’ont pas tenu compte de cette dimension et que, de ce fait, leur pouvoir conclusif en est très diminué. Nous montrons, d’autre part, que les expérimentations ultérieures qui présentent, elles, une analyse formelle de l’existence d’un équilibre de Nash ont été réalisées de manière disparate et que, de ce fait, leurs résultats sont difficilement comparables. Nous concluons cet article en posant quelques jalons pour une recherche future.
