Coordination, croissance et géographie économique

[eng] Starting from the insights due to the new growth theory and to the development of economic geography, our contribution focuses on the crucial dimension of growth mechanisms and of geographic concentration, that is the fact that growth mechanisms necessarily imply for the economy to cope with a special kind of coordination, i.e. disequilibrium coordination. The last part of the contribution is an attempt to provide an analytical framework aimed at better understanding the characteristics of this special kind of coordination. [fre] À partir d'une réflexion sur les apports récents des théories de la croissance et de la géographie économique, cette contribution met en avant que les mécanismes essentiels des processus de croissance et de concentration/dispersion géographique résident dans la compréhension de la coordination en déséquilibre des économies. Une tentative rudimentaire de compréhension et d'analyse des déterminants et caractéristiques d'une telle coordination est proposée dans la dernière section.
