A Primer on Finance-Led Capitalism and Its Crisis

Abstract

Cette contribution au débat sur le capitalisme financiarisé cherche à identifier les changements structurels principaux dans la nature de la finance depuis les années 80. Après avoir analysé la dynamique d’innovation financière, l’accent est mis sur le processus de titrisation comme moteur d’une nouvelle forme du capital financier, le capital fictif, qui nourrit les bulles spéculatives. L’éclatement de la dernière bulle, centré sur le marché immobilier américain, a déclenché la crise financière la plus sérieuse depuis des décennies. L’article se conclut sur une discussion des implications possibles de cette crise systémique.
