The position of firms in 2008


Quarterly selection of articles - Bulletin de la Banque de France, 2009, issue 16, 53-81

Abstract: The new definition of enterprises and their size, with the introduction of mid-tier companies, has brought to light three very distinct populations. Mid-tier and large enterprises continue to borrow and invest, unlike small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which are nevertheless the most profitable.
