Abstract

L’objectif de ce texte est de développer une réflexion critique sur quatre auteurs (MARX, SCHUMPETER, GALBRAITH, CASTELLS) clés qui ont marqué les sciences économiques et sociales par la pertinence de leurs analyses sur l’évolution du capitalisme. L’idée principale que nous avons cherché à mettre en avant est le caractère contradictoire du capitalisme : alors que le profit naît de la concurrence, les firmes capitalistes ont de tout temps cherché à réduire la concurrence. De l’entreprise concentrée à la firme-réseau, la logique reste la même : planifier le marché pour en réduire l’incertitude. This paper is based on four authours (MARX, SCHUMPETER, GALBRAITH, CASTELLS). These four authors have developed an original analysis about the capitalist evolution. They looked to show the capitalist contradictions : negation of the free market to minimize the uncertainty of the free market. The capitalist firms have always looking for ways to minimaze the uncertainty of the free market. The process of the concentration/centralisation of the capital is one of these ways to minimize the uncertainty. The oligoplistic firms control a most important part of the market (prices/quantities, of labor, of capital, etc.). In conclusion, the existence of the capitalism is based about the negation of the free market because the oligoplistic firms look for how they can develop their activites outside the free market.
