Abstract

Le poids de la dette publique est revenu au centre des préoccupations des hommes politiques et des citoyens, à l’issue notamment de la publication du rapport Pébereau le 14 décembre 2005. La charge de la dette (2,5 % du PIB en 2005) serait le deuxième poste de dépenses de l’État et absorberait la quasi-totalité des recettes de l’impôt sur le revenu. La France vivrait à crédit depuis trente ans : les générations actuelles reporteraient la charge des dépenses publiques sur les générations futures. Chaque nouveau-né en France hériterait d’une dette de l’ordre de 17 500 euros ! Il nous semble pourtant qu’il faut éviter une vision manichéenne de la dette publique : celle-ci a des avantages et des inconvénients (...).
