La boucle prix-salaires dans l'inflation

[fre] L'article part de l'idée qu'il 'ne peut y avoir de théories satisfaisantes de l'inflation : celle-ci ne peut-être expliquée que par l'imperfection des marchés ou des règles et par l'illusion inflationniste des agents. Il développe la théorie de la détermination de l'inflation par la boucle prix/salaires ; des descriptions alternatives de l'évolution des prix et des salaires induisent des interprétations différentes de l'in­flation : le niveau d'inflation peut être structurel (déterminé par le niveau présent des tensions sur la répartition et les marchés) ou historique (déterminé par la chronique passée de ceux-ci). L'article discute l'impact de la gestion du taux de change sur le processus inflationniste et présente les politiques anti-inflationnistes qui peuvent jouer sur la demande ou sur l'offre. [eng] Inflation and wage-price feed-back Michèle Debonneuil et Henri Sterdyniak This article starts front the idea that no theory of inflation can be based solely on economic agents rational behavior : their inflationary illusions have to be taken into account, as well as market imperfections. The theory of inflation developed here rests mainly upon the wage-price feed-back, so that different descriptions of prices and wages evolutions lead to different interpretation, of inflation : the level of inflation can be structural, — i.e. determined by current markets disequilibria or distributional conflicts — or historical — i.e. determined by the past evolution of them. The consequences of various exchange rate policies upon the inflationary process are also discussed, as well as the impact on supply and demand of several anti-inflationist meaaures.
