    Since 1945, unions demystify the figure - Accounting - representative of economic reality, which is based on management company. Most positions of delegates of works councils, they are applied upon obtaining their economic prerogatives to decode the data obtained from company management to control the running of the business and support their claims. In the late 70s, due to the difficulty in obtaining these figures, secret bosses, unions have suspected the presence of an ideology behind the construction of the figure and propaganda. In an outburst of protest, they demanded more information they get with the advent of Auroux laws of 1982, allowing them to understand the performance of their business as a whole and not only according to the criteria of profitability . From there, the unions have proposed new criteria for data management and alternative to capitalist management. This development could not have taken place without the assistance and expert advice pluridiscplinaires. This story shows that the figure is not neutral but built according to conventions and ideologies born ulterior objectives. The debate that may result is serious because reducing production figure - based economic management of the company and the economy - a unique aspect - Financial here, reduced reading performance and the ability to make solutions to crises.
