L'Économie Néo-Institutionnelle

Listed author(s):
  • Ronald Coase

[eng] Mainstream economics has become increasingly abstract over time. It is little concerned with what happens in the real economic system, and is dedicated to the analysis of choices (whatever the purpose of these choices). To the opposite, New Institutional Economics is concentrated on the main subject of economic analysis : the flows of goods and services. These flows are depending upon the institutions, that result themselves from complex evolutionary and interactive processes. The study of complex interrelated structures is the economists' research agenda for the coming years. [fre] Le courant dominant de l'analyse économique s'est éloigné de son objet d'étude pour se concentrer sur le développement d'outils analytiques destinés à rendre compte des choix. L'économie néo-institutionnelle se caractérise au contraire par la volonté de se concentrer sur l'objet d'étude des économistes : les flux de biens et services. Ces flux dépendent de manière cruciale des institutions qui elles-mêmes résultent de processus d'évolutions et d'interactions complexes. L'étude des multiples relations d'interdépendances en cause constitue le programme de travail des économistes pour les prochaines années.
