Croissance de la productivite et utilisation de la capacite


  • Gu, Wulong
  • Wang, Weimin


Le present article decrit une approche non parametrique de la correction de la mesure de la croissance de la productivite multifactorielle (CPMF) visant a tenir compte des variations de l'utilisation de la capacite au fil du temps. Dans le cadre elabore ici, en partant de la theorie economique de la production, on etablit une mesure de l'utilisation du capital que l'on estime en comparant le rendement ex post au rendement attendu ex ante du capital. On compare ensuite l'approche non parametrique avec l'approche parametrique et le cadre classique de comptabilite de la croissance. Les approches non parametrique et parametrique permettent toutes deux de corriger le biais cyclique present dans la mesure classique de la CPMF, mais l'approche non parametrique offre une correction plus pratique de l'effet de l'utilisation de la capacite, car elle est plus facile a mettre en oeuvre et plus en harmonie avec l'approche non parametrique utilisee de longue date par les organismes statistiques et les chercheurs.
