    (VF)Le présent article résume les propositions des acteurs du système de gouvernance américain en 2002 et s'intéresse au mythe de la transparence. Le moment est bien choisi pour approfondir la recherche sur ce sujet parce que la mondialisation des marchés est en train de conduire à la défense irréfléchie ou à l'adaptation sceptique du modèle américain qui constitue la référence pour les nouveaux marchés du reste du monde. Or, les chercheurs en théorie des organisations ont une vision assez réduite du fonctionnement de ce système. (VA)This paper summarizes the proposals generated within the American system of corporate governance in 2002 with an aim towards exposing the unexamined disclosure myth and concealed power relations. Further research on this topic timely precisely because globalization of markets is leading to either mindless championing or skeptical customization of the American model in other countries. Either way, the U.S. model serves as a reference point for new markets around the world. At the same time, organizational scholars have misleading information about the functioning of this system.
