L'économie Social e et Coopérative Des Associationnistes: De La Critique Des Fondements De L'économie Politique à La Régulation Sociale Du Marché


  • Danièle Demoustier
  • Damien Rousseliere


This article aims to present and discuss the main theses defended by the Associationistes, a founding school of social and cooperative economics in France. These theorists (Louis Blanc, Auguste Ott, Philippe Buchez) develop a criticism of the functioning of their society, starting from a reflexion on the foundations of the classical political economy. Today, their thought is topical on three levels : concerning the methodology of political economy with the oft discussed separation between positive and normative science ; on the right to work by association and the question of the collective ownership ; and finally on the nature of the social regulation of the market.
