L’analyse du déclin dans la seconde moitié du xix e siècle. Le point de vue des économistes français


  • Alain Clément


The decline of France is analysed by French economists of the second part of the 19th century in a European comparison of demographic data. We find in these analysis a strong link between demographic decline and economic decline. Paradoxically, they propose as a solution, the colonial expansion of France to stop economic and demographic decline. uk is the symbol of this approach. Classification JEL : B12
