Quentin Belot, « Une socio-histoire de la financiarisation dans l’industrie automobile Une analyse de la gestion financière mise en œuvre par la firme PSA Peugeot Citroën à partir des années soixante mise en relation avec la stratégie de contrôle déployée par la famille dirigeante », thèse en sociologie démographie à l’Université Paris Saclay, sous la direction de Claude Didry (CMH) et de Cédric Lomba.

A sociologic and historical approach of financialization in the automobive industry. An analysis of the financial management of the firm PSA Peugeot Citroën since the sixtee’s and the evolution of the family strategy of control.

As soon as we try to analyze the recent dysfonctions in the financial management of workforce into the big firms, the look spontaneously deviates to finance. It seem like as soon as we understand the phenomenon in a historical perspective, we are immediately plunged into the spectrum of neoliberalism. The usual representation oppose the free market deregulated by neoliberal policies from the 1980s and 1990s, to the Keynesian interventionist policies in the post-war economic growth. This research aim to deconstructing this schematic opposition by studying concrete forms of productive process’s management in big firms since the 1960s-1970s. Conducting an archival research in the firm PSA Peugeot Citroën (automobile), we will study the innovations in financial direction at the heart of fordist production regime. Thus, we will highlight the interdependences between the past and the present, to understand the current transformations of capitalism in his entire historical dimension. We will try to understand the recent innovations in financial administration and management in a whole historic perspective, to underscore continuities into these models which are often only viewed from the perspective of a rupture.
