The Act to modernize the economy voted in August 4th, 2008 aimed at introducing a new statute of self-entrepreneur, the auto-entrepreneur in French, in order to support an economic policy combining fight against unemployment, search for points of growth and improvement of the purchasing power. The purpose of this article is to open the debate about the model of the self-entrepreneur embedded in this new law. To this effect, we adopt a double point of view : A legal perspective regarding the implications for labor law, and an economic perspective with a view to analyze the concept of the firm underlying the new model. The first section discusses the proclamation of independence of the self-entrepreneur by highlighting the multiple legal dependences resulting from a plurality of jobs on the one hand, and from the exercise of the productive activity itself on the other hand. The second section deals with the contradictions that exist between the legal conception of self-employer on one side, and the growth expectations of the companies, and the entrepreneurship theories on the other.
