Abstract

[fre] L'article étudie les liens entre la politique macro-économique et la politique technologique plus spécifiquement au niveau européen. On utilise le cadre de l'offre et de la demande agrégées pour montrer comment par exemple une augmentation de la demande globale due à une politique fiscale avantageuse pourrait alimenter des progrès en termes de technologie et de croissance. Cette argumentation est validée par des observations empiriques suggérant des corrélations allant de la croissance du produit vers le progrès technologique (plutôt que des causalités inverses). Plusieurs mécanismes de transmission sont discutés. De ces interrelations, on tire quelques implications de politique, qui sont en faveur d'une croissance économique contrôlée et en opposition avec la « stabilité » actuellement en vogue dans l'Union européenne. [eng] The paper investigates the links between technology policy and macroeconomic policy, most explicitly for the EU. It uses a modified AS/AD framework to show how increases of aggregate demand in the form of (say) fiscal policy could feed through to induced gains in technology and growth. The argument is supported by empirical evidence suggesting a correlation running from GDP (etc.) to technology as well as the converse. Several « transmission mechanisms » are discussed as likely to bring about such mutual linkages. The paper then draws policy implications, which favour a more controlled economic expansion than the « stability » currently in vogue in the EU.
