Abstract

Sources of state revenue have a major impact on patterns of state formation. This proposition from fiscal sociology is valid and convincing in the context of western European history and comparisons among contemporary states in the South. This article investigates the extent to which we can conclude that the quality of governance in contemporary developing countries might improve if states were more dependent for their financial resources on domestic taxpayers. The radically different context of contemporary third-world states cautions against too firm conclusions. /// Les sources de revenu de l'État ont un impact essentiel sur les modèles de formation de l'État. Cette proposition issue de la sociologie de la fiscalité est valide et convaincante dans le cadre de l'histoire de l'Europe occidentale et de comparaisons entre des États du Sud contemporains. Cet article étudie jusqu'à quel point nous pouvons conclure que la qualité du gouvernement dans les pays en voie de développement actuels pourrait s'améliorer si ces États étaient davantage dépendants, pour leurs ressources financières, des contribuables domestiques. Les contextes radicalement différents dans le Tiers-Monde aujourd'hui invitent à prévenir des conclusions trop fermes.
