Abstract

[eng] Economic policy and growth prospects in the emerging economies of africa. . We evaluate the growth potential of African economies up to the year 2010. The analysis is based on the estimation of a model of growth in panel data for 39 African economies during seven five-year periods from 1960 through 1995. Our simulations involve, first, a "baseline scenario" which extends policies observed in the past and, second, an "Emerging Africa scenario" where some African economies keep on implementing the reforms already undertaken and achieve a sustained improvement of their performances. Our results make it possible to disentangle the origin of the gains expected from a sustained improvement of African policies. [fre] Politique économique et perspectives de croissance dans les économies émergentes d'Afrique. . Nous évaluons le potentiel de croissance des économies d'Afrique à l'horizon de 2010. L'analyse s'appuie sur l'estimation d'un modèle de croissance en données de panel, pour 39 économies d'Afrique et sept périodes quinquennales, couvrant les années 1960-1995. Nos simulations s'appuient sur un « scénario de base », consistant à extrapoler les politiques observées et un scénario d'« Afrique émergente » où certaines économies africaines poursuivent les réformes déjà amorcées et améliorent durablement leurs performances. Nos résultats permettent de dé­composer les gains attendus d'une amélioration durable des politiques en Afrique.
