Abstract

La balance des transactions courantes de la balance des paiements luxembourgeoise est confrontée à une forte modification de ses composantes: déficit persistant de la balance des biens, dégradation du solde des revenus d'investissement, évolution inquiétante des transferts courants,... Mais quelles en sont les causes? Sont-elles d'origine structurelle ou sont-elles d'une nature passagère? Sont-elles liées à une perte de compétitivité ou sont-elles la consequence d'une croissance économique atone favorisant ainsi le déséquilibre de la balance des operations courantes? C'est à cet ensemble de questions que nous allons essayer de répondre en adoptant deux types d'approches. La première consiste à utiliser des modèles de la balance commerciale (biens et services) de type «Mundell-Fleming» afin d'estimer des élasticités critiques (condition de Marshall Lerner) ou de déterminer l'existence d'une courbe en J. La seconde approche consiste à utiliser les modèles intertemporels de la balance courante dans lesquels les économies échangent un même bien (ou deux biens échangeables: importation et exportation) afin de tester les comportements de lissage intertemporel de la consommation, de l'épargne et de l'investissement des agents.
