Quand Pierre Mauroy résistait avec rigueur au 'néo-libéralisme' (1981-1984)

Abstract : Pierre Mauroy’s Rigorous Fight Against “Neoliberalism” (1981-1984)This article examines the widespread belief that French Socialist elites were quickly and decisively seduced by the charms of neoliberalism at the beginning of the 1980s. Did François Mitterrand dress up in Ronald Reagan’s clothes in March 1983, and did Pierre Mauroy unwittingly implement neoliberal economic policies? A thorough analysis of the archives of the French president and prime minister’s offices in fact reveals the incredibly discreet – if not downright invisible – contribution of neoliberal thought to Socialist economic policies at the time. If France did indeed enter into a neoliberal economic era during the 1980s, the roots of that transition should be sought under the subsequent Fabius and Chirac governments, rather than while Pierre Mauroy was at the helm.
