La contribution du capital public à la productivité des facteurs privés : une estimation sur panel sectoriel pour dix pays de l'OCDE


  • Christophe Hurlin


[eng] The contribution of public capital to private factor productivity: an estimate using sector-based panel data . for ten OECD countries . by Christophe Hurlin . This paper uses sector-based panel data on ten OECD countries to produce a number of estimates of the return on public capital. The introduction of country-specific effects finds that public capital has positive effects on private productivity. However, these effects are relatively moderate compared with those found by a level-based specification applied to aggregate chronological data. We find no distinct or systematic deviation between the estimated public capital elasticities and the public investment ratio for the countries in our panel. [fre] La contribution du capital public à la productivité des facteurs privés : une estimation sur panel sectoriel pour dix pays de l'OCDE . par Christophe Hurlin . Dans cet article, nous proposons une estimation des rendements du capital public à partir d'un panel sectoriel de dix pays de l'OCDE. Il ressort de cette étude que, d'une part, l'introduction d'effets spécifiques aux pays ne permet pas de rejeter l'hypothèse de l'existence d'effets productifs significatifs du capital public, mais que, d'autre part, ces effets sont relativement modestes comparés à ceux qui avaient été obtenus à partir d'une spécification en niveau et sur données agrégées chronologiques. Ainsi on n'observe pas d'écart manifeste ou systématique entre les élasticités estimées du capital public et les parts de l'investissement public dans la production.
