    Abstract

    Depuis une vingtaine d'années, le thème de l'autorité dans la relation d'emploi a fait l'objet d'un regain d'intérêt parmi les économistes, en raison notamment dela prise en compte de l'incomplétude des contrats. Dans cet article, notre objectif est double. Il s'agit tout d'abord de porter un jugement sur la fameuse controverse Coase/Alchian-Demsetz, en étudiant les fondements de l'autorité intrafirme. Il s'agit également de montrer que la relation d'autorité intrafirme ne peut se résumer à une variable unique, mais au contraire repose sur une pluralité de mécanismes. Dès lors, compte tenu de cette pluralité, la relation d'autorité entre un employeur et un employé doit s'appréhender en termes de degré, et non en termes d'autorité infinie – ou nulle – de l'employeur sur l'employé.
