À la recherche d'une théorie de la firme pertinente historiquement. Retour sur le cas d'intégration verticale General Motors/ Fisher Body (1926)
The paper analyses whether the economics of the firm is, or can be, historically relevant. In order to answer this question, we re-examine the famous historical case of vertical integration Fisher Body-General Motors. The archive related to this famous case being now accessible, we consider that this is a major opportunity to reconsider the case, and further to propose new guidelines on what an historically relevant economics of the firm may look like.
