Choix Publics en Environnements Concurrentiels et Réglementés

Abstract : This document presents a synthesis of my research since the defense of my PhD thesis entitled "Design of efficient market for the Deregulated Sectors: The Case of the wholesale electricity markets" in December 2001. The presentation of my work is built around two research programs, which relate to two types of complementary reforms, carried out in the late eighties, in many countries: the liberalization of infrastructure industries on the one hand, and the changes in the regulation of the public-private interactions on the other hand. In my work, I use the two traditional fields of public economics, namely the economic analysis of regulation on the one hand, and the economic analysis of the public contracts, on the other hand. I adopt a vision of the State as a regulator who relies on contracts of regulation or competitive mechanisms like auctions, to intervene and regulate the economic activity. I mobilize the transaction cost theory and the new institutional economics applied to the regulation (Spiller, 2009, 2011) on the one hand, and the incentive theory applied to the regulation on the other hand (Baron, Myerson 1982; Laffont, Tirole 1993), to study the efficiency properties of contracts and markets. Lastly, I use the recent developments of auction theory and mechanism design to understand the impact of market institutions (in particular auctions) on efficiency. I use empirical approaches, studying various sectors in which reforms have been conducted to increase efficiency: the electric sector, the rare diseases channel, energy efficiency activity, public work procurement. My work relates to the competitive reforms, when it is a question of introducing competition where it did not exist, or to the regulatory reform which aim at defining and enforcing public-private interactions.
