Inégalités des revenus,endettement et pauvreté dans les pays de l’uemoa : une approche sur données de panel dynamique
[Income inequalities, debt, and poverty in WAEMU Countries : A Dynamic Panel Data Approach]
AbstractThe objective of this paper is to analyze the impact of income inequalities on external debt on the one hand and the influence of external debt on poverty on the other hand. The study relates to a sample made up of seven WAEMU countries between 1984 and 2005. The empirical verification starting from data of dynamic panel shows overall significant results. Indeed, these results affirm firstly that the income inequalities favours the increase of external debt and secondly, the presence of external debt increases poverty in WAEMU countries.
