Dépenses publiques d'éducation et inégalités. Une perspective de cycle de vie

Guillaume Allègre (), Thomas Melonio and Xavier Timbeau ()

Revue économique, 2012, vol. 63, issue 6, 1055-1079

Abstract: In this article, we measure the redistributive impact of education expenses when financed publicly. We consider a life-cycle perspective and estimate, for each individual, the education expenses received and the taxes paid during his or her foreseen career. We conclude that the public financing of non-compulsory education slightly increases inequality, while the public financing of compulsory education strongly diminishes inequalities among individuals of a same generation. However, these transfers seem to matter far less than the differences in future income due to an unequal access to higher education based on social origin. Classification JEL?: D31, D63, I22, H40
