Analyse économique néo-institutionnelle de la mise en marché collective. Application au secteur laitier du Québec

Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the analysis of the Québec collective milk marketing system and it's marketing board using New Institutional Economics. Marketing boards are mandatory marketing organizations legislatively specified, that achieve various marketing functions on behalf of producers of a specific agricultural product. Generally considered and analyzed in economics as horizontally integrated organizations, marketing boards are examined in this thesis from their institutional and organizational roles, as well as their transactional effectiveness, within the vertical coordination of agricultural products transactions. In order to evaluate the relative effectiveness of this organization, a comparative approach with bilateral contracts between producers and milk purchasers in Great Britain was privileged. The thesis is divided into three parts.
After having presented the operation and structure of the collective marketing system of agricultural products, the first part justifies the interest in analyzing this marketing mode in terms of vertical coordination. The second part first examines the question of the determinants of the emergence of the collective marketing system as a hybrid institution. It secondly analyses the organizational nature of the Quebec milk marketing board and proposes to consider this governance structure as a quasi-hierarchical hybrid organizational form. The third part is empirical. An original database collected from 62 English dairy producers and Québec milk board's employees is analyzed to quantitatively evaluate the importance of transaction costs supported by English and Québec dairy producers when they contract with milk purchasers.
