Abstract

[fre] Cycles de la production industrielle : une analyse historique dans le domaine des fréquences . par Pierre Villa . Nous étudions les cycles par la méthode ARFIMA. Nous calculons des séries mensuelles de taux de chômage et de production industrielle, puis nous les filtrons par Holt et Winters puis par de Geweke et Porter-Husak pour retirer la tendance à mémoire longue correspondant à un processus d'intégration fractionnaire. Nous estimons les fluctuations mesurées par la différence entre la série corrigée des variations saisonnières et la tendance longue mesurée par la Fourier inverse du processus fractionnaire. Il n'y a pas de cycle régulier Selon la première interprétation, il y un effet de " cliquet ". Selon la deuxième, l'État a depuis la seconde guerre mondiale réduit les fluctuations de forte amplitude enregistrées auparavant par sa gestion de l'activité. Selon la troisième, les chocs aléatoires observés correspondent à une théorie des cycles réels. [eng] Industrial production cycles: a historical analysis of frequencies . by Pierre Villa . This paper uses the ARFIMA method to study industrial production cycles. We calculate monthly industrial production and unemployment rate data. We then filter them using "Holt and Winters" and then "Geweke and Porter-Husak" to find the long-run memory trend corresponding to a fractional degree of integration. We estimate the fluctuations, which are measured by the difference between the seasonally adjusted series and the long-run memory trend as measured by the inverse Fourier transform. No regular cycle is found. The first interpretation of this is that a "ratchet" effect is at work. The second interpretation is that the government has stabilised the economy using Keynesian policies since the Second World War. A third interpretation is that the observed random shocks are related to the real business cycle theory.
