Abstract

We present a small size dynamic macroeconomic model, numerically calibrated on quarterly French data, describing an economy working under imperfect competition on both labour and goods markets. The labour market exhibits a persistence effect relying on the insider-outsider theory. The closure of the model is obtained by household consumption (permanent income), by public spendings and by foreign trade. The long run properties of the model and the conditions for a unique rational expectations path in the neighbourhood of the steady state are successively analysed before computing and interpreting the dynamic multipliers associated with non anticipated transitory shocks. L’article présente une maquette dynamique, chiffrée sur données trimestrielles de l’économie française, décrivant une situation de concurrence monopolistique à la fois sur le marché des biens et sur celui du travail. Sur ce dernier existe un effet de persistance conforme à la théorie « insider-outsider ». Le modèle est bouclé par la prise en compte de la consommation des ménages (revenu permanent) ainsi que des dépenses publiques et des échanges extérieurs. Après avoir étudié les propriétés de long terme de la maquette et vérifié les conditions d’existence et d’unicité de trajectoires d’anticipations rationnelles au voisinage de la solution stationnaire, des multiplicateurs dynamiques correspondant à des chocs transitoires non anticipés sont calculés et interprétés.
