Du modèle économique de Spence à la nouvelle sociologie économique de White
This paper examines the way in which Harisson White (the sociologist, founder of the american « New Economic Sociology »), has borrowed from the economist, Michael Spence, his model of the employer/employee relationship in asymmetric information situations, and built his own model of markets from it. More precisely, we show that the apparent similarity (introduced by the methodological element borrowed from Spence) actually hides deep differences between the two authors, and we attempt to determine to what extent it can shed some new light on the relationships between economics and sociology.
