Comptabilité et pensée économique. Introduction à une réflexion théorique
The purpose of this paper is to confront accounting and economic theory and to discuss some basic points such (i) the relation between capitalism and double-entry book-keeping (ii) the congruence between mainstream economic theory and accounting principles (iii) the relation between stocks and flows. Three main points are suggested : (i) double-entry book-keeping may be theoretically justified more by the disequilibria inherent in market economies than by the existence of capital (ii) a monetary approach (as opposed to a value approach) and accounting are congruent and relevant for the study of market economies (iii) there exists a no bridge between flows of payments and evaluations of wealth.
