Changements organisationnels et libéralisation La commercialisation du riz au Mali


  • Sophie Dupressoir


[eng] Organisational changes related to liberalization policies: the rice trade system in Mali - The aim is to understand the organizational mechanisms underlying the liberalization of rice trade in Mali. The theoretical frameworks of complex systems. Economics of conventions and "Economies de la grandeur" are used to develop a model of trade systems. Using a set of date collected from firms we identify different arborescent trade systems which differ from their temporal horizons and their goals. [fre] L'objectif est de comprendre les mécanismes organisationnels qui sous-tendent la libéralisation récente du commerce du riz au Mali. L'article propose une relecture des systèmes complexes à la lumière de l'économie des conventions et du modèle des économies de la grandeur qui débouche sur une grille d'analyse des systèmes commerçants. On montre, à partir de données d'enquêtes, que les échanges se polarisent autour d'un nombre limité de systèmes commerçants arborescents, articulant selon des modalités différentes des horizons temporels et des objectifs distincts.
