La mondialisation est étroitement liée à la dynamique du capitalisme. Les entreprises multinationales sont les principaux acteurs de ce phénomène. Depuis le 19ème siècle cependant, les entreprises multinationales ont étendu leurs activités sur la planète. Elles contrôlent l’ensemble de l’économie mondiale. Ce phénomène a été étudié par les économistes depuis le début du 20ème siècle. Certains ont ainsi considéré que le marché (la concurrence) disparaissait au profit d’un mode de planification privée mondiale. Notre objectif est d’étudier la pensée de cinq économistes (K. Marx, J. A. Schumpeter, J. K. Galbraith, M. Castells et P. Krugman) et de formuler quelques hypothèses sur l’évolution de l’économie mondialeSince Globalisation is linked to the dynamics of capitalism. Global firms are the main actors of this phenomenon. Since the 19th century, global enterprises have developed their activities worldwide and they now control the world economy. This phenomenon has been studied by many economists since the beginning of 20th century. Some of them consider that the free market (competition) has disappeared and that the management of the world economy is no more based now on the free market but on private economic planning. Our objective is to study the thinking of five economists on this subject (Marx, Schumpeter, Galbraith, Castells, Krugman) and to formulate some hypotheses on the future of the global economy.
