Abstract

L'objectif de cet article est de réexaminer la question de l'inefficience des entreprises publiques à la lumière de la théorie de la gouvernance des entreprises. Deux questions principales sont posées. Quelles sont les différences principales entre les systèmes de gouvernance des entreprises publiques et des entreprises privées? Dans quelle mesure et par quelles voies ces différences de systèmes peuvent-elles expliquer les écarts de performance? La réflexion est notamment articulée autour de l'exemple de la crise du Crédit Lyonnais.
