De la spécificité à la compétitivité. L'exemple de la construction de la compétitivité sur une base territoriale
Considering the idea of location as a specific asset, this article deals with the question of the link between specificity and competitiveness. Meeting the approaches of the spatial and industrial economists, the firm's theories and the strategic theories, this question implies a reflection on the resources and competences of the territory and the firm's capacities to mobilize them. It appears that the discussion about assets specificity is inseparable from a reflection about the aspects of competitiveness that cannot ignore the Transaction Cost Theory.
