No 2007-11, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX
This text proposes to address the issue of the arbitrariness of decision-making, by using the concept of convention. We use the analytical framework of the (French) Conventions economics to define convention as an “interpretation scheme” We show the role of the representations, in the decision-making process and in the coordinating activity, upstream. The interpretation of the context by the decision-maker relies on such conventions, the normative support of which attenuates their fundamentally arbitrary character.
