Abstract

For a lot of researchers, the capitalism would evolve by successive phases characterized by a dominant model of company. Following the conclusion of a variety of productive models of GERPISA steering committee, Robert Boyer and Michel Freyssenet proposed not one but three models of durably profitable companies during the 70-80s. The political contribution of the GERPISA would be so to have shown that the actors were not obliged to submit themselves to the same model, in this particular case to the lean production. The employees notably would have so the choice between three models. The scientific contribution of the GERPISA would be to have put in light three different manners to make durably profit, and so the relative variety of capital-labour relation in companies.

Several members of the GERPISA answer what brings really to have three possibilities instead of one for the actors of the company. Who can say that a model is more enviable than the other one? What possibilities and perspectives several models offer to whom refuses to be satisfied with the state of subordination in which the employees are generally?
The article underlines the dynamics and the contradictions of the productive models, and the possibility for the cators to use this dynamic and these contradictions to their own perspectives.
