[eng] Planned Bequests in France: Assessment and Determinants, by Sergio Perelman, Pierre Pestieau. The purpose of this paper is to determine the proportion of planned bequests in France on the basis of a survey of the financial assets of 5600 households. These data are then analyzed to determine whether or not they correspond to our preconceived ideas on intentional legacies and whether or not they comply with some of the standard models of inheritance. [ger] Das freiwillige Vermächtnis in Frankreich: Bewertung und Erklärung, von Sergio Perelman, Pierre Pestieau. In diesem Artikel soll der Umfang der freiwilligen Vermächtniszuwendungen auf der Grundlage einer Erhebung ermittelt werden, die das Nationale Institut für Statistik und Wirtschaftsstudien "Insee" über die Struktur des Geldvermögens von 5.600 Haushalten durchgeführt hat. Diese Messung wird anschließend analysiert, um zu überprüfen, ob sie einerseits unseren apriorischen Erkenntnissen über die beabsichtigten Vermächtniszuwendungen und andererseits einigen Erbschaftsmodellen entspricht.
