Abstract

La presente etude porte sur l'effet de la liberalisation des echanges sur la taille des usines, la duree des cycles de production et la diversification des produits. Nous elaborons tout d'abord un modele du commerce de produits differencies sous l'hypothese d'usines multiproduits. Nous presentons ensuite des preuves empiriques a partir d'un grand panel d'usines de fabrication canadiennes et d'apres leur experience de l'Accord de libre echange entre le Canada et les Etats Unis (ALE) de 1989. Selon le modele, les reductions tarifaires bilaterales reduisent la diversification des produits des usines exportatrices, augmentent la duree des cycles de production et ont un effet ambigu sur la taille de ces usines. En outre, elles reduisent la diversification des produits et la taille des usines non exportatrices mais n'ont pas d'effet sur la duree des cycles de production de ces usines. Les donnees empiriques sur les usines non exportatrices appuient le modele de facon generale. Les donnees recueillies sur les usines exportatrices montrent que les etablissements exportateurs reduisent la diversification des produits et augmentent la duree des cycles de production et la taille des usines, mais ces changements ne semblent pas etre lies aux reductions tarifaires. Une fois entrees sur les marches d'exportation, les usines reagissent a des forces autres que les reductions tarifaires. De nouvelles reductions tarifaires ont alors moins d'effet sur ces usines.
