Abstract

Comment améliorer la prévision des retournements conjoncturels de l’économie belge ? Nous présentons ici de nouveaux indicateurs qui mesurent le risque de récession. Appliqués au 4ème trimestre 2004, ils n’indiquent aucun risque de récession ou de ralentissement économique sévère. A partir de 2005, ces indicateurs seront publiés régulièrement sur le site Internet de l’IRES.
