Pas d'orage en vue sur le site de Figueruelas

Les historiens du marché commun nous ont appris que les deux grands américains ont joué un rôle clé dans la construction d’une Europe de l’automobile qu’ils ont perçue très tôt comme une condition d’efficacité de leurs dispositifs industriels dans la région.
Ils ont utilisé l’adhésion du Royaume-Uni pour réduire la voilure de leurs sites anglais qu’ils considéraient comme peu performants et socialement ingérables en cessant d’en faire des sites exportateurs pour réserver leurs productions au marché britannique et importer au Royaume Uni depuis le continent une part importante des véhicules qu’ils y vendaient (1).

Corporate control is a key topic to understand the dynamics of the contemporary economy and business strategies. Who controls the automotive industry? Recent studies suggest for that the corporate control of automotive firms is increasingly associated with banks and players from the financial system. It implies a significant increase of "financialization" and the role financial institutions in the dynamics and behavior of firms. This paper addresses the extent of influence of financial institutions in the corporate control of automotive companies. In order to understand this subject the paper aims to: 1) analyze the shareholder structure of the largest automobiles companies; 2) analyze the structure and the relations in the corporate ownership network; 3) Identify groups in the corporate ownership network and 4) analyze to what extent organizations depend on financial institutions. From the methodological point of view, the research is descriptive, exploratory, supported by qualitative, quantitative data and by social network analysis. The sample includes the 30th biggest (OICA classification) automakers and their shareholders. The corporate ownership network includes 30 automakers, 348 nodes and 654 connections (among companies, owners and financial institutions). read more
