"The word 'policy' is vague and does not have much to inspire. (...) the launch of a new type of battery will always be more galvanizing than the political decision which will have enabled a chemist to invent it. (...) the design of new policies [will] allow inventions to be tested and released to the market as quickly as possible "(taken from B. Gates' book)
Legislation is an essential element in the socio-ecological transition. It imposes constraints on companies but also allows to gain market share for those who decide to comply as quickly as possible.
The objective of this course is to study the instruments of economic policy and to discuss their effectiveness.




We will discuss instruments of 3 types: direct regulation, economic instrument and voluntary approaches. We will study the case studies (scientific articles and not only) which describe the policies as well as their impact on companies, supply chains.
