Abstract

[eng] Interactions between the econome and the polity : a synthesis of theoretical and empirical studies. Friedrich Schneider, Werner Pommerehne, Jean-Dominique Lafay. Studies of the Western democraties and Eastern socialist countries are surveyed analyzing the interaction between the economy and polity. The influence of economie and political factors on voters' behavior, as described by popularity functions, is studied for varions time periods and institutional franwworks. How government reacts to this in Western democraties is modelled assuming a satisficing approach aimed at either securing re-election or the pursuit of ideological goals. For socialist countries it is shown that high-ranking government members will be dismissed if the state of the economy is unsatisfactory. Possible extensions of such politico-economic models are also discussed. [fre] Cet article présente les analyses des interactions entre économie et politique effec­tuées dans le cas des démocraties occidentales et des pays socialistes de l'Europe de l'Est. On examine l'influence des facteurs politiques et économiques sur le com­portement des électeurs, sur la base de fonctions de popularité, pour différentes périodes et dans divers cadres institutionnels. Un modèle décrivant la façon dont le gouvernement réagit dans les démocraties occidentales est présenté. Il suppose que le gouvernement adopte une stratégie de «satisfaction», en cherchant selon les cas à assurer sa ré-élection ou à atteindre des objectifs idéologiques. Dans les pays socialistes, on montre que les changements dans le gouvernement seront plus importants si la situation économique n'est pas satisfaisante. On examine enfin les possibilités d'extension de ces modèles politico-économiques.
