Part salariale dans le PIB en France. Les effets de la salarisation croissante


  • Nicolas Canry


French wage share in value-added has experienced important fluctuations for three decades. Nevertheless, recent studies have underlined that the usual indicator of wage share, by estimating labour remuneration of self-employed workers very badly, overestimates the French wage share decrease after 1990. By using a disaggregated method (at a sectoral level) to asses labour remuneration of self-employed, these studies conclude that French wage share did not drop as much as usual method could suggest. However, this disaggregated method, by calculating labour remuneration of self-employed on the base of employees? one, overestimates itself the French wage share increase during the 1970s. We eventually present a third method of calculation, according to which French wage share would have remained, after 1990, quite below its level of the beginning of the 1970s. JEL Codes: C10, J30.
