janvier 2018 La fiscalisation de l’aide publique au développement : enjeux pour l’efficacité économique des pays receveurs et la crédibilité politique des donneurs. Emilie CALDEIRA, Anne-Marie GEOURJON, Grégoire ROTA-GRAZIOSI

Dès le milieu des années 2000, les exonérations des projets financés par l’aide extérieure ont été débattues sur la scène internationale. Leur abandon, souvent envisagé, n’a jamais été adopté. Pourtant, cette question est de nouveau d’actualité. D’une part, de nombreux pays en développement ont entrepris des réformes de politique et d’administration fiscales visant à améliorer […]

janvier 2018 Graduation of the Least Developed Countries, a Step Towards Sustainable Development Patrick GUILLAUMONT

The Least Developed Countries (LDCs) category has been set up in 1971 to identify countries « caught in a trap » and to support them to move « out of the trap »[1]. The category, if successful, aimed at the end to disappear. But after about half a century, the move out of the LDC category through the graduation […]

janvier 2018 About polluting eco-industries: optimal provision of abatement goods and Pigouvian fees Damien SANS, Sonia SCHWARTZ, Hubert STAHN

In this article, the authors introduce a polluting eco-industry. Depending on the level of damage, there are two optimal equilibria. If the damage is low, one generalizes the usual results of the economic literature to the polluting eco-industry: the dirty firm partially abates their emissions, only efficient eco-industry firms produce and the abatement level increases […]

décembre 2017 Measuring corruption in presence of reticent respondents: Theory and Application Bernard GAUTHIER, Frédéric LESNÉ

We propose an alternative two-step method to correct the bias in corruption indicators associated with the presence of reticent respondents in firm surveys. Our method uses indirect and direct questions on bribery payments. An indirect question is used to identify reticent respondents, which makes it possible to adjust responses to a direct question assessing bribery […]

décembre 2017 [2016-0]Un survol de la théorie des biens communs Jean-Louis COMBES, Pascale COMBES MOTEL, Sonia SCHWARTZ

Cet article propose un survol de la théorie des biens communs. La notion de bien commun et la possible surexploitation de ce type de ressource sont tout d’abord exposées. Ensuite, plusieurs illustrations sont apportées telles que le réchauffement climatique, la déforestation, la congestion urbaine et le déficit budgétaire. À chaque fois, les moyens d’éviter la […]

décembre 2017 Impact of export upgrading on tax revenue in developing and high-income countries Sena Kimm GNANGNON, Jean-François BRUN

Empirical studies usually analyse the relationship between an economy’s trade sector and tax revenue in developing countries through the e ect of trade liberalization on tax revenue. This paper takes a di erent angle by examining the impact of export upgrading strategies (export diversi cation and improvement in export quality) on non-resource tax revenue. The […]

décembre 2017 Stacking up the ladder: A panel data analysis of Tanzanian household energy choices Johanna CHOUMERT, Pascale COMBES MOTEL, Pierre Leonard LE ROUX

Energy-use statistics in Tanzania reflect the country’s low level of industrialization and development. In 2016, only 16.9% of rural and 65.3% of urban inhabitants in mainland Tanzania were connected to some form of electricity. We use a nationally representative three-wave panel dataset (2008-2013) to contribute to the literature on household energy use decisions in Tanzania […]

décembre 2017 The Elasticity of the Migrant Labour Supply: Evidence from Temporary Filipino Migrants Simone BERTOLI, Jesús FERNÁNDEZ-HUERTAS MORAGA, Sekou KEITA

The effect of immigration on host and origin countries is mediated by the way migrants take their labour supply decisions. We propose a simple way of integrating the traditional random utility maximisation model used to analyse location decisions with a classical labour demand function at destination. Our setup allows us to estimate a general upper […]

décembre 2017 Microeconomic mechanisms behind export spillovers from FDI: evidence from Bulgaria Andrea CIANI, Michele IMBRUNO

This paper studies how the presence of multinational enterprises affects the export performance of Bulgarian manufacturing firms—export spillovers from FDI. Using export data at the firm/product/destination level for the period 2004–2006, it finds positive forward spillover on export value and quantity, related to quality upgrading. Conversely, it finds negative (or insignificant) backward and horizontal spillover […]
