L'invention des institutions de la liberté en Europe : fragmentation politique, fragmentation territoriale et religion

Abstract : This article supports, on the one hand, that the invention of capitalism and the generalization of the market were born in Europe because the European territory was fragmented and good for polycentrism (1). The invention of market illustrates the theory of institutional competition. It argues, on other hand, that the geography and the European polycentrism do not explain all. Europe also discovered the good institutions for the development because it was unified between V° and X° century by the Christian religion. This religion was good to the recognition of the freedom ethics which is the cultural condition to the identification of the market institution (2).
