Estimation du comportement cyclique des taux de marge : Une note technique

Listed author(s):
  • Joaquim Oliveira Martins
  • Stefano Scarpetta

Cette étude présente des estimations des fluctuations cycliques des taux de marge, suivant une généralisation de la méthode de Rotemberg et Woodford (1991). Les résultats confortent l’hypothèse que les taux de marge sont anticycliques dans la plupart des secteurs, notamment en présence de rigidités à la baisse de l’emploi. Cela s’accorde avec les nombreuses études empiriques selon lesquelles, lors des périodes d’expansion, la concurrence s’accroît ou les incitations à la collusion diminuent, ce qui engendre une pression à la baisse sur les taux de marge. En outre, ce résultat offre une interprétation intéressante pour le comportement procyclique des salaires réels.
