Abstract

L'objectif de cet article est d'explorer le sens de la causalité qui caractérise les relations entre le développement économique et le développement de l'humain — le développement humain accompagné de la transition démographique — au sein du processus global de développement. Dans un premier temps, il développe — grâce à l'analyse en composantes principales — un indicateur synthétique de développement incluant ces trois aspects fondamentaux. L'observation de l'évolution temporelle de cet indicateur permet dans un second temps de fournir un argument empirique au débat. Les résultats montrent que le développement de l'humain constitue un préalable au développement économique. Ainsi, il semble que seules les populations ayant largement entamé leur transition démographique peuvent bénéficier d'une amélioration sensible et durable de leur niveau de développement humain et que seul un développement humain suffisant permet d'accompagner un développement économique lui aussi durable et profitable. This article explores the direction of the causality between economic development and humanity development — human development accompanied by demographic transition — within the global process of development. At first, it develops — through principal components analysis — a synthetic indicator of development including these three fundamental aspects. The observation of the temporal evolution of this indicator subsequently provides an empirical argument to the debate. The results show that humanity development constitutes a precondition to economic development. Thus, it seems that only populations having largely started their demographic transition can profit from a noticeable and durable improvement of their human development level. In the same way, only a sufficient human development makes it possible to accompany a durable and advantageous economic development. (Full text in French)
