Accumulation et transmission du patrimoine sur longue période: l'exemple d'une lignée paysanne de Loire-Atlantique (XIX-XXe siècles)
In this paper, we reconstruct the wealth path of an ascending line of descendants in a rural area at XIXe and XXe century and we describe theoretically the process of accumulation and transmission of wealth with microeconomic models of saving. The wealth profile of each generation was build with all their transactions over the life cycle (purchase, sale, exchange, marriage settlement, gifth, inheritance). In this prospect, we use the records of the Registration. This data allowed us to illustrate several wealth accumulation models (life cycle hypothesis, inheritance models, intra-family exchange). In future research, we want to build a sample of lines of descendants to develop new empirical tests of theoretic model based on historical data. More generally, we could tackle the question of relevance of modern theoretic model to explain wealth behaviour in the past.
