L'économie évolue, selon certains économistes et historiens, en suivant des périodes de prospérité, de déclin, de reprise et de croissance. Il est alors important de comprendre cette logique et de l'appliquer à la période actuelle de profondes mutations des activités économiques et sociales. Schumpeter analyse le processus d'accumulation à long terme, mais il met bien en évidence les transformations fondamentales du système capitaliste au fil de son évolution. Aujourd'hui, la finance, l'information et la flexibilité de l'utilisation du capital et du travail portent les germes d'une nouvelle organisation de la société. L'entreprise devient un espace de regroupement d'activités et de pratiques éparses ; la socialisation de la production et la généralisation des rapports marchands sont de moyens de moins en moins compatibles avec la centralisation des richesses entre les mains des centres privés de pouvoir et de décision. For some economists and historians, the economy evolves in following periods of prosperity, decline, recovery and growth. It is important to understand this logic and apply it to the current period of deep change in economic and social activities. Schumpeter analyses the long-term accumulation process and gives prominence to the fundamental changes occurring in the evolution of the capitalist system. Today finance, information and flexibility in the use of capital and labour contain the seeds of a new organisation of the society. The firm becomes a place for rallying of scattered activities and practices; socialisation of production and generalisation of market relations are a means which are less and less compatible with centralisation of wealth in the hands of private centres of power and decision.
