The Roles of Inventories Investigated in a Factor Demand Model

  • Marga Peeters

[fre] Les rôles des stocks étudiés dans un modèle de facteurs de production. . Dans cette étude, le rôle des stocks comme facteur de précaution (à la Holt, Modigliani, Muth et Simon [1960]) et/ou le rôle comme facteur de production (à la Kydland et Prescott [1982], Christiano [1988]) sont étudiés dans un modèle à cor­rection d'erreurs. Des données françaises pour cinq secteurs industriels sont utilisées pour l'analyse (1970.1-1992.IV). Les résultats indiquent que ni le rôle de précaution, ni le rôle de facteur de production n'est rejeté. [eng] The Roles of Inventories Investigated in a Factor Demand Model. . An ECM is derived from first order conditions of a factor demand model. The role of inventory stock in the long run, i.e. as a precautionary measure (according to Holt, Modigliani, Muth and Simon [1960]), and/or the role as production factor (Kydland and Prescott [1982], Christiano [1988]) are investigated. French data from five industrial sectors (1970.1-1992.IV) are used for the analyses. The results indicate that neither the role of a precautionary measure nor the role of a production factor is rejected.
