Abstract: This article analyses the interaction between competition, productive models and financialisation of the main pharmaceutical companies. After having studied the institutional specificities and the constraints that shape productive models, we analyze how transformations of ownership structures and corporate governance are connected with institutional relationships of the industry, leading to the emergence of a conception of control inciting dominant firms to adopt models focused on the most profitable dugs (blockbusters). This article converges with the conclusion of Palpacuer et al. (2007) on the agrofood industry case. Finally, the article analyzes the main causes of the recent crisis of these models.
