L’indexation des créances selon Maurice Allais : leçons pour la crise actuelle



    () (Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches sur le Développement International(CERDI))


If the debate relative to claim indexation is old, it seems that the financial and economic present crisis should have given a new topicality to this question. However the huge literature focused on the causes and responses to the crisis does not even mention the question of indexation. The first part of this article recalls the main features of Maurice Allais’s argumentation in favour of indexation while the second analyses in what extent indexation claims may have prevent from the subprime crisis and could contribute to the solution to the economic and financial crisis.
