L'intérêt général et l'investissement. Coût marginal de long terme et tarification à électricité de France (1948-1949)

Abstract : The paper investigates the construction of a concept in economic theory, long-term marginal cost pricing. It does so by exploring the work done within Électricité de France in 1948-1949 by a group of engineer-economists who came out with the notion while they were engaged in completely remaking the pricing policy of the new public monopoly. I will show that the concept envisages a large-scale reorganization of the national power generation capacity in order to enact a certain conception of the general interest in the electric sector.
