Abstract

The GERPISA is frequently blamed to have privileged the production to the detriment of the design and of the marketing, and to have confirmed this preference by using the term of “productive models”. A theoretical intuition is important because of its heuristic capacity. According to this intuition, the production, essential for the dynamics of our societies, it is not the production of tangible assets, but the “production of value”. The produced value allows to reconstitute the initial capital and to increase it. In the social relation that dominates our societies, namely the capital-labour relation, the produced and sold goods have importance only as means allowing to this particular social relation to reproduce itself and to diffuse in an increasing number of human activities. So we use the term “productive” in the initial meaning of “production”.
