Abstract

Cet article analyse l'utilisation d'une batterie d'indicateurs composites comme mesure de la compétitivité. À partir de tests de rangs de Spearman et Kendall (1938), nous montrons que les classements induits par ces différents indices de compétitivité sont très fortement corrélés. De plus, à partir d'une analyse critique de ces indicateurs, nous prouvons qu'ils ne peuvent être utilisés comme mesure de la compétitivité des pays. En effet, le manque de fondements théorique et empirique dans le choix des variables et leurs pondérations induisent des problèmes d'interprétations en termes de politique économique. Les " scores " obtenus à ces différents indicateurs sont donc à interpréter avec prudence et les indices composites doivent plutôt servir de variables indicatrices ou benchmark de la compétitivité résultant sur des tableaux de bords.
