Abstract

Social accounting is a way of measuring and assessing the economic and social results achieved by a non-profit body. It is in the light of this observation that the project "SOCIAL ACCOUNTING OF THE NON-PROFIT BODIES" has been launched, involving the Tuscan Regional Authority, the Provincial Authorities of Florence and Pistoia, Cesvot, Le Reti di Kilim association and the Department of Business Science of the University of Florence. An important phase of theoretical research resulted in the publication PISR no. 2, "Observations on the issue of social accounting" in May 2002. Following this, the research approach finalised at the identification of a model of reference for the social accounting process of third sector organisations highlighted the need to concretise what had been elaborated. In other words, to apply the previous theoretical conclusions to certain "pilot" bodies and to report on the experience. More specifically, this work reports several processes of social accounting in which the authors have taken part. For each of these a grid of summary and comments has been prepared, with the purpose of facilitating a comparative reading.

Abstract

Prouvy, avril 1922. Profitant des besoins gigantesques de la reconstruction dans le Nord après la première guerre mondiale, un petit industriel, en quête d’une affaire florissante, fonde la Société anonyme française Eternit. Objectif : produire des matériaux de couverture en amiante-ciment bon marché et en grande série. Cette firme, par l’absorption de concurrents, par l’implantation sur le marché des tubes et une stratégie commerciale agressive, acquiert rapidement un leadership. Les années 1955-1975 sont euphoriques, la demande, suscitée, est effrénée. Le territoire national est quadrillé par de nouvelles usines, la productivité et la pénétration outre-mer et dans le tiers monde sont poussées au maximum. Dès le départ, cette réussite est fondée sur un matériau dont la nocivité est connue depuis la fin du xixe siècle : l’amiante. Pendant des décennies, l’entreprise détruit le capital humain. Actuellement, l’amiante cause en France 10 décès par jour, 3 000 par an ; 100 000 sont à prévoir d’ici 2025, une hécatombe à laquelle participe largement l’Eternit française. À l’aide d’archives, de la presse économique, de témoignages, ce livre interroge pour la première fois le processus de domination d’une branche, les tests de la rentabilité capitaliste, les techniques, les métiers d’une industrie de la mort, la progression des maladies d’Eternit. L’amiante n’est interdit en France qu’en 1997, après 20 ans d’attente, en Europe qu’en 2005. Un problème capital est posé : que vaut la vie humaine au regard du profit ?

Abstract

This book explores the perceived paradigmatic conflict within British classical economics between the so called 'Ricardo School' and the contemporary French Economics of Jean-Baptiste Say. Samuel Hollander provides the reader with extensive evidence, utilizing all editions of Say's main texts and his lesser-known writings in order to demonstrate his adherence to much of Ricardian theory. This intriguing book focuses on selected doctorinal issues and surrounding debates, and will interest all serious historians of economic thought, finding a place on the bookshelves of many economists across the world.
