    The transition of the former socialists economies to the system of market economy can also be viewed as an exceptional experiment about the real nature of market economy. In this respect, the difficulties met in the transition provide fruitful informations concerning the relative importance of the different parts composing the system. In this paper, we consider the flexibility of behaviors, the time path of transformations and the role of the State during the transition. Endly, an assessment of the validity of the neoclassical paradigm, as a picture of market economy, comes out.La transition des anciennes économies planifiées vers Jéconomie de marché (comme le passage à léconomie administrée il y a quelques décennies) représente une expérience en grandeur réelle dune portée considérable pour lanalyse économique. Dans le cas présent, les difficultés de mise en place dune économie de marché nous amènent à réfléchir sur limportance réelle des différents éléments constitutifs dun tel système. La capacité dajustement des comportements des agents économiques, le rythme des transformations et le rôle de lEtat sont ainsi réexaminés. En conclusion, il apparaît que la représentation traditionnelle de léconomie de marché à travers le schéma dominant inspiré de la théorie néoclassique, qui a servi de soubassement intellectuel à la plupart des programmes se révèle peu adapté.
