Simone Schotte - Research Fellow, GIGA Institute of African Affairs,

Event date : January 25, 2018

OCP Policy Center organized with the French Institute of International relations (IFRI) a conference on “African middle classes”, a term popularized by the 2011 African Development Bank report, and that often stand as a symbol of the economic and demographic dynamism of the continent. This conference brought together world renowned experts to discuss the “African middle class” category and, through various case studies, provide nuanced interpretations of the ongoing socio-economic dynamics in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Here is a video of Abebe Shimeles Abebe, Director and Manager of the Development Research Division, African Development Bank, whose research focuses on labor market integration, migration issues in Africa and impact evaluation of policy interventions.

Méthodes mathématiques avancées pour l’analyse économique

Lahcen Oulhaj | September 23, 2018

Le calcul différentiel et intégral, de plus en plus utilisé en économie et en économétrie financière, notamment par les économistes de la London School of Economics qui ont développé le modèle ARFIMA, font l’objet d’un chapitre entier.

On sait que la macroéconomie servant de cadre aux politiques économiques (conjoncturelles) est devenue dynamique, depuis les travaux des économistes du cycle réel des affaires (Finn E. Kydland et Edward C. Prescott, entre autres) au début des années 1980. Ce modèle du cycle réel (RBC model), après avoir intégré des apports keynésiens et monétaristes, est devenu le modèle DSGE (Dynamic and Stochastic General Equilibrium), qui constitue l’outil privilégié de la conduite de la politique monétaire, à travers le monde, au moins jusqu’en 2008. Soucieux de l’intérêt grandissant pour cet aspect dynamique, ce livre a tenu à introduire les équations différentielles ordinaires, qui sont des outils mathématiques indispensables pour l’étude des systèmes dynamiques en économie.

Les statistiques, probabilités, et lois discrètes et continues usuelles sont également traitées au niveau du présent livre. Il traite aussi des notions très utiles à l’économiste statisticien telles que la théorie statistique asymptotique, les moments empiriques et les distributions empiriques et théoriques.

Le dernier chapitre du livre introduit l’optimisation dynamique qui est au cœur de l’analyse économique dynamique et s’attarde quelque peu sur le calcul des variations, resté depuis Newton, Euler et Lagrange, le seul outil de résolution des problèmes d’optimisation dynamique, jusqu’aux années 1950 qui ont vu l’élaboration du principe du maximum du russe Pontryaguine et de la programmation dynamique de l’américain Richard Bellman.
