Critique théorique et test empirique des politiques de croissance de l'OCDE


  • François Boye


The Going for Growth Reports published since 2005 by the OECD have already established their credibility at the international level. Even so, this paper claims that they are failing on two counts. On the one hand, their concepts are not totally in accordance with exogenous or endogenous growth theory. On the other hand, the OECD?s growth policy recommendations cannot stand the test of macroeconomic simulation. None of them either has positive effects across all G-7 countries or can raise any G-7 country?s GDP growth forecasts by one percentage point in each and every year of the 2009 to 2014 period. JEL classification codes: O3, O4, O5.
