Abstract

Depuis les travaux d’Aschauer (1989a), et Munnell (1990a), de nombreux travaux ont tenté d’établir et de mesurer la relation entre les dépenses publiques en infrastructures et la productivité des secteurs d’activité ou la croissance économique. Ce rapport fait d'abord une revue de littérature des différentes méthodes d'estimation employées depuis le début des années 1990. Nous présentons l’approche utilisée pour l’estimation à savoir l'approche duale proposée par Harchaoui et Tarkhani (2003) et appliquée à l’économie canadienne. Notre estimation a été réalisée sur les données de l’économie québécoise afin de mesurer la contribution du capital public à la croissance sectorielle de l'économie québécoise pour la période 1997-2002. Nos résultats confirment un rôle positif et significatif du capital public mais avec des amplitudes différentes de celles trouvés par Harchaoui et Tarkhani (2003). Length: 28 pages
