Abstract

Les technologies de production permettent de supposer raisonnablement que la compétition internationale entre facteurs de production aboutira à une convergence de la production par habitant. Y a-t-il un processus analogue qui va mener à une convergence de l'activité du secteur public? Nous fournissons un modèle simple qui prévoit une convergence des dépenses publiques sous certaines conditions. Nous démontrons que le modèle de Barro (1990) prédisant une croissance endogène provoquée par les dépenses publiques justifie les assomptions nécessaires et renforce ainsi l'hypothèse de convergence. Nous discutons aussi la possibilité que la globalisation croissante ait conduit à une convergence des dépenses publiques. Notre enquête empirique transversale produit une évidence irréfutable de convergence des dépenses publiques par habitant pour la consommation, le capital et l'éducation. Ces résultats fournissent un cadre nouveau pour expliquer les forces dynamiques qui déterminent la croissance des dépenses publiques. Copyright WWZ and Helbing & Lichtenhahn Verlag AG 2004.
