Modes de gouvernance d'entreprise : la question de la finance


  • Patrick Ternaux


Corporate governance tends to understand the relations between the partners of the firm, in particular the manager and the shareholders. With the financialisation of economies, the nature of economic relations has strongly evolved. Under the influence of the contractual theories, shareholding seems to have influence over the other forms of management. How will the fundamental values of entrepreneurship resist? Contrary to some generally accepted ideas, alternatives to this model exist as regards the creation of companies and of jobs. JEL codes: G300, L200, L510, P100, Z100
