Endettement public et redistribution en France de 1980 à 2004

This article deals with public debt dynamics in France. It also analyses several contemporary debates such as Ricardian equivalence, sustainability and budget balance decomposition. Public deficit is not necessarily the result of a Keynesian type of expansionary fiscal policy. It can also stem from insufficient tax resources creating a reversal bottom-up redistribution. The deficit would be then recessionary. In the latter case, expenditures' reduction can only worsen the macroeconomic environment.
