Abstract

La présente étude se propose d’évaluer les implications du développement du système financier sur la réduction de la pauvreté dans l’UEMOA et de mettre en évidence d’éventuels mécanismes de seuils dans la relation étudiée à partir d’analyses théoriques et empiriques. Les résultats obtenus à partir de données de panel pour un échantillon de sept pays de la Zone sur la période 1981-2005 montrent que l’approfondissement financier est un facteur réducteur de la pauvreté monétaire dans l’Union. Par ailleurs, la prise en compte dans l’échantillon d’autres pays en développement fait ressortir qu’il existe des mécanismes de seuil dans la relation entre approfondissement financier et pauvreté. Ces résultats sont robustes à l’introduction de variables de contrôle additionnelles. This study aims to assess both financial development effects for poverty reduction in the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) and threshold effects evidence in financial development and poverty relation using theoretical and empirical analyses. The results obtained with panel data for a sample of WAEMU countries from 1981 through 2005 suggest that the poor benefit from the ability of banking system to facilitate credit allocation and provide saving opportunities. Moreover, with taking account of other developing countries in the sample, we find that financial deepening must get a certain level to be beneficial significantly to the reduction of poverty. These results are robust to additional control variables introduction. (Full text in french)
