Les aléas de la croissance dans une économie fondée sur le savoir

  • Pascal Petit

[eng] How can the notion of an information economy characterize the growth pattern of contemporary economies ? This work examines the market dynamics caused by the accumulation of knowledge and the diffusion of information and communication technologies. The propositions illustrate the causal thread which induce agents to take advantage, at various levels of production and exchange, of new information settings. Such perspective helps to outline various risks the control of which conditions the level and stability of economic growth. [fre] Comment la notion d'économie de l'information peut-elle caractériser un nouveau mode de développement des économies contemporaines ? Pour répondre à cette question la présente contribution prend le parti de suivre la dynamique des marchés qu'impulsent l'accumulation des connaissances et la diffusion des nouvelles technologies de l'information et de la communication. On cherche à esquisser en dix propositions l'enchaînement qui, aux divers stades de la production et de l'échange, conduit les agents à tirer profit des nouveaux dispositifs d'information. L'approche met ainsi en évidence différents types de risques dont la maîtrise conditionne le niveau et la stabilité de la croissance.
