Abstract

Cet article présente un mécanisme de croissance fondé su rla seule division du travail, c'est-à-dire sur l'augmentation de la diversité des tâches. La division du travail a lieu à la fois au sein des entreprises et entre celles-ci. Le processus d'augmentation du nombre de tâches est rendue possible par l'augmentation du nombre d'entreprises. L’étude de la division optimale du travail montre que l'équilibre décentralisé n'alloue pas assez de ressources à la coordination du travail.
