Pouvoir et économie politique. L'apport de François Perroux à l'analyse positive de la firme


  • Virgile Chassagnon


This article is a contribution to the economics of the firm that aims at showing the theoretical relevance of the arguments and conceptualizations proposed by the French economist Fran?ois Perroux to analyze the capitalist firms in a positive perspective. At the opposite of the mainstream economics, the social and political dimensions constitute in the Perrouxian thought the two crucial ingredients that allow to accurately analyze the power relationships that characterize the dynamics and the government regime of firms. The Janus relationship between agonism and cooperation seems to be at the heart of intra-firm power processes. Code JEL?: A10?; B40?; L10?; L20?; P12
