[eng] Temporal Dominance Criteria by Thierry Karcher and Alain Trannoy A discounting operation is required to treat the inequaUty of wage and income careers over the life cycle. A single discount rate is often chosen more out of doctrine than a reaUstic view of the markets. In many cases, it would seem more reasonable to adhere to more approximate assumptions such as a range of discount rates. The purpose of temporal dominance is precisely to fist the cases in which such inexactitude does not prevent intertemporal income flows from being ranked. The comparison criteria obtained are based on different definitions of the concept of impatience, which is discussed in depth. A comparison of wage careers in the national education system illustrates the criteria found. [fre] Critères de dominance temporelle par Thierry Karcher et Alain Trannoy L'inégalité des carrières salariales ou des revenus sur le cycle de vie exige une opération d'actualisation. Le choix d'un unique taux d'actualisation relève souvent plus de la profession de foi que d'une vision réaliste des marchés. Dans beaucoup de cas de figure, il semble plus raisonnable de s'en tenir à des hypothèses plus grossières comme, par exemple, celle d'une plage de taux d'actualisation. L'objet de la dominance temporelle est justement de répertorier les cas de figure dans lesquels cette indétermination n'empêche pas de classer des flux de revenu intertemporels. Les critères de comparaison obtenus sont basés sur différentes définitions du concept d'impatience qui est discuté en profondeur. Une comparaison de carrières salariales de l'Education Nationale illustre les critères obtenus.
