Abstract

La première partie de ce texte sera consacrée à l'analyse des inégalités de revenus en Thaïlande. Nous verrons que la croissance élevée a permis de faire reculer la pauvreté absolue mais pas les inégalités de revenus. Dans la deuxième partie, nous montrerons que l'évolution démographique de la Thaïlande va renforcer au cours des décennies à venir les conséquences sociales des inégalités de revenus. En l'absence d'une reprise de la croissance à un rythme élevé, seule une redistribution des revenus et des politiques sociales actives, en particulier la création d'un système de retraite universelle, pourra permettre d'éviter une régression sociale d'ampleur.
