L'effet de l'infrastructure publique sur les estimations de la productivite multifactorielle au Canada


  • Gu, Wulong

Le cadre comptable de la croissance est utilise dans cette etude afin d'evaluer l'importance du capital public dans la croissance de productivite du secteur prive. La majeure partie des estimations conventionnelles de la productivite multifactorielle (PMF) se limite a la contribution du secteur des entreprises. Cette analyse presente de nouvelles mesures experimentales d'estimations de la productivite multifactorielle pour le secteur des entreprises qui incorporeraient la contribution du capital public. Elle emploie l'estimation de l'elasticite de la production du secteur des entreprises par rapport au capital public (tire de l'etude de R. Macdonald (2008)). Les estimations conventionnelles de la croissance de la productivite multifactorielle s'elevent en moyenne a environ 0,4 % par an au cours de la periode. Pres de la moitie de cette croissance est attribuable au capital public.
