Abstract

[eng] This paper analyzes the consequence of the prime pour l'emploi, a tax credit introduced in France in May 2001. It is argued that the prime pour l'emploi will have only négligeable effects on job creation and some small redistributive consequences. Some elements, likely to improve the efficiency of the current system, are discussed. [fre] Cet article analyse les conséquences de la prime pour l'emploi, instituée par la loi du 30 mai 2001, à la lumière des expériences étrangères de valorisation du travail. Il soutient que les caractéristiques du marché du travail français impliquent que le dispositif actuel de prime pour l'emploi a des effets négligeables en matière de création d'emploi et un impact redistributif relativement faible. Cet article discute aussi d'éléments susceptibles d'améliorer l'efficacité redistributive et incitative du dispositif actuel.
