Déséquilibres globaux et croissance des pays émergents dans une économie mondiale


  • Kenza Benhima


The last decade has been characterized by large current account deficits in the US and by the relative growth of total factor productivity in emerging markets. This article lays down a model of a world economy where financial integration between two countries (an industrial country and an emerging one) and heterogeneous financial markets in these countries trigger these two facts. The key element of the mechanism is the existence of two technologies, one more productive than the other but subject to liquidity shocks. Classification JEL : F36, F43, O16, O33.
