Le tâtonnement "marshallien" dans les premiers écrits d'Oskar Lange

Registered author(s):

    Cet article revient sur le célèbre article de O. Lange [1936-37] en prenant appui sur ses premiers écrits (Lange [1932], [1935a], [1935b]) afin de montrer qu'il développe une représentation originale du processus marchand. Ces premiers articles mettent en lumière deux points méconnus de ses travaux. 1/ Tout d'abord, Lange développe un modèle original décrivant le processus d'ajustement temporel de l'offre dans les secteurs industriels (en complément du diagramme du cobweb se rapportant principalement aux secteurs agricoles). 2/ Cet article montre ensuite que Lange articule ces différents modèles dans le cadre d'une conception originale du tâtonnement. L'article montre que cette conception relève davantage de l'approche marshallienne que de l'approche walrassienne habituelle.
