[eng] Has the japanese wage labour nexus reached its limits ? The new microeconomics theories for labour contracts and markets, the econometric studies investigating and comparing the origins of unemployment in OECD countries and « regulation » research on the Japanese capitalism seem to converge towards a common vision of the specificities of the Japanese wage labour nexus and its consequences upon the relative speed of adjustment for employment, hours and earnings. The defensive flexibility typical of Fordism is contrasted with the internal and organized flexibility of the Japanese employment system. [fre] Le rapport salarial japonais a-t-il atteint ses limites ? Les nouvelles théories microéconomiques du travail, les études économétriques comparant les déterminants du chômage dans les pays de l'OCDE et les analyses régulationnistes du capitalisme japonais convergent pour caractériser les spécificités du rapport salarial japonais et leurs conséquences en matière d'ajustement de l'emploi, des horaires et de la rémunération salariale. À la flexibilité externe de la configuration fordienne s'oppose la flexibilité interne du système d'emploi japonais. Dans cette optique, il ressort que la crise des années quatre-vingt-dix ne marque pas nécessairement la fin de l'emploi à vie mais probablement une nouvelle phase d'adaptation du rapport salarial japonais.
