Abstract

L’instauration du Mont-de-Piété à Bordeaux fut un succès institutionnel. Ses objectifs sont atteints : il lutte contre l’usure, abaisse le coût du crédit, finance la politique de bienfaisance de la ville, tout en étant indépendant financièrement. McLaughlin (2013) a étudié les causes de l’échec du Mont-de-Piété irlandais au début du XIXe siècle. Contrairement à l’institution française, l’établissement irlandais ne bénéficie pas d’un cadre législatif favorable, et il fut créé dans un environnement socio-économique très différent. Il convient de vérifier la position de McLaughlin et d’appréhender l’importance du monopole du prêt sur gages accordé au Mont-de-Piété français. Cependant, il est nécessaire de dépasser ce simple cadre. Le Mont-de-Piété répond à une demande sociale forte et apporte les réponses adéquates. L’objet de cet article est d’étudier les causes de la réussite de l’établissement de Bordeaux, et de proposer pour cela le concept d’économie sociale de bienfaisance.
