[fre] Taux d'imposition locaux optimaux et processus d'ajustement progressif : existe-t-il des clubs communaux en France ? par Alain Guengant et Christophe Tavéra L'article propose une exploration économétrique de l'hypothèse d'ajustement graduel des taux d'imposition votés par les conseils municipaux aux taux optimaux désirés par les électeurs médians à partir d'un échantillon relatif aux 850 villes de métropole de plus de 10 000 habitants sur la période 1993 à 1995. L'analyse économétrique est basée sur une estimation "cross section dynamique". Une procédure recursive avec tests de stabilité séquentiels permet de déterminer de façon endogène les clubs de villes ayant des caractéristiques homogènes au niveau du processus de convergence du taux de pression fiscale vers le taux optimal. [eng] Optimal local Tax Rates and Gradual Adjustment Process: do Clubs of Towns Exist in France? by Alain Guengant and Christophe Tavéra This paper proposes an econometric study of the hypothesis of the gradual adjustment of tax rates voted in by town councils to the optimal rates wanted by median voters based on a relative sample of 850 French mainland towns with more than 10,000 inhabitants over the period from 1993 to 1995. The econometric analysis is based on a cross-section dynamic estimation. A recursive procedure with sequential stability tests endogenously determines the clubs of towns with homogeneous characteristics in terms of the convergence of the tax rate to the optimal rate.
