La création d'entreprises et ses rapports au territoire

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Firms creation and its territorial relationships. The article presents first, from a critical viewpoint, the treatment that the firms creation and its territorial relationships have received until these days in regional economics. The origins of the theoretical framework go back to more than twenty years ago, but since then, the argumentary did never stop to be revised and developed. Several works by regional scientists have requested the contribution from other economic fields, in particular from labor, industrial and spatial economics. The assessment leads us to address the interactions between economic phenomena for the explanation of which the theoretical framework is constructed. Some interactions, that could be revealed important, seem to have been neglected. The research perspectives that we then suggest belong to a dynamic vision. Arguments are proposed for the building of a more comprehensive theoretical framework, taking more explicitly into account the firms creation and its effects, the return effects being included, in their spatial and temporal dimensions.
