[eng] Productivity and quality effects of automatization : a macroeconomic approach. . This paper on automatization and economie growth under lines the specificity of the present reorganization of work in manufacturing industries.. It distinguishes the usual productivity effects from quality effects which enlarge the market.. Speed and level of diffusion of new technics in the seven main OECD countries allow for some tentative estimation of these quality effects. Simple economic tests illustrate the method. [fre] Effets productivité et qualité de l'automatisation : une approche macro-économique . . La présente analyse des relations automatisation-croissance cherche à souligner la spécificité de l'actuelle réorganisation du travail industriel en distinguant au-delà des gains de productivité usuels des effets proprement qualitatifs permettant d'étendre les marchés de produits.. Vitesse et niveau de diffusion des nouvelles techniques dans les sept principaux pays de l'OCDE peuvent conduire à une appréciation de ces effets-qualité. Des estimations économétriques simples donnent une illustration de la méthode.
