Dynamic structuralism and path-dependence : industrial economics in Italy

Listed author(s):
  • Cristiano Antonelli

[fre] L'économie industrielle italienne a développé un structuralisme dynamique, avec dépendance de sentier. Elle s'est appuyée pour cela sur le rôle de la nature systémique du changement économique et par conséquent du temps historique dans l'évolution de l'organisation des entreprises et des industries, des caractéristiques du changement technologique et des agglomérations régionales. La tendance commune de nombreuses contributions dans les vingt dernières années semble avoir consisté à essayer de construire une conception plus dynamique de la structure industrielle permettant d'analyser les modalités des interactions entre la structure et les comportements. [eng] A dynamic path-dependent structuralism has been developed in Italian industrial economics building on the analysis of the role of the systemic and non-ergodic nature of economic change and hence of historic time in the evolution of the organization of firms and industries, the characters of technological change and regional clusters. The common thread of many contributions of industrial economics in the last twenty years seems to be the attempt to elaborate an enlarged and dynamic notion of «industrial structure» that explores the characters o the interaction between structures and conduct.
