    Cet article propose une estimation de la production potentielle et un modèle d’écart de production au Liban en utilisant plusieurs méthodes statistiques comme la méthode de la tendance linéaire, le filtre d’Hodrick-Prescott et la méthode de la tendance segmentée. Dans la mesure où le Liban enregistre une évolution très erratique de son PIB réel, la méthode de la tendance segmentée, qui consiste à déterminer les dates de rupture de l’évolution du PIB observé autour de sa tendance sur la période 1970-2008, semble être la plus efficace pour estimer le PIB potentiel au Liban. Elle permet, en outre, d’établir un modèle d’écart de production entre le PIB effectif et le PIB potentiel et de confirmer la théorie selon laquelle l’augmentation de l’écart de production (où le PIB effectif est supérieur au PIB potentiel) entraîne des pressions inflationnistes. Cet article montre une stabilité structurelle du modèle de gap de production en recourant à des tests de stabilité des coefficients et de la dynamique de l’erreur de prévision.
