D’une crise à l’autre : Mesurer l’impact des prix alimentaires sur la pauvreté

  • Delphine Boutin

    (Larefi, Université Bordeaux IV)

L’envolée récente des prix des commodités depuis fin 2010ouvre à nouveau le débat de la mesure des conséquences de l’inflation alimentaire sur la pauvreté. Cet article offre un éclairage méthodologique grâce à une revue critique de la littérature et propose de nouvelles pistes de réflexions afin d’évaluer au mieux l’effet de la variation et de la volatilité des prix sur la pauvreté des ménages. Plus précisément, la complexité des relations entre prix alimentaires et pauvreté sera initialement étudiée. Une seconde partie explique les différentes méthodes utilisées et les difficultés méthodologiques sous-jacentes à résoudre lorsque l’on souhaite mesurer l’impact du changement des prix sur la pauvreté individuelle. Enfin, la dernière partie insiste sur la nécessité d’intégrer la problématique de la volatilité des prix à l’analyse.
