Abstract

The present work intends to bring few clarifications, hopefully useful, in the general problem of economic competition. As it is probably already known by the reader, most of the XXth century studies on this subject are almost mysteriously dominated by the neoclassical writers\\\'s (leaders would be one like Paul Samuelson and William Baumol) construction of perfect competition.
