Abstract

L’objectif principal de la Stratégie de croissance accélérée (SCA) du Sénégal est d’accroître le rythme de la croissance de l’économie en la rendant profitable aux pauvres. Or dans toute économie, il existe une relation entre la croissance économique, la réduction de la pauvreté et la distribution des revenus. Dans cet article, nous développons un modèle d’équilibre général calculable dynamique afin de simuler l’impact de la SCA et évaluons, à l’aide d’indices, la qualité de la croissance qu’elle génère. Les résultats montrent que la croissance issue de la SCA n’est pas pro-pauvre. Toutefois, comparée au sentier de croissance obtenu en l’absence de toute politique ou choc (« business as usual »), elle présente un profil plus bénéfique aux pauvres.
