Le phénomène de transferts de fonds suscite un débat passionnant au sein de la classe politique, des chercheurs et des universitaires.

Il est, en effet, l’un des pays qui reçoit le plus de transferts de fonds dans le monde. L’objet de cet article est d’étudier les propriétés cycliques des transferts de fonds vers le Maroc. En utilisant des filtres économétriques adéquats et pertinents ainsi que des données trimestrielles nous arrivons à mettre en lumière des aspects empiriques importants des transferts de fonds. En effet, les transferts de fonds constituent un enjeu majeur pour l’économie marocaine, de même, jouer les rôles importants de stabilisateur et d’amortisseurs.
