Bercy: An Empire or a Constellation of Principalities?

The public image of the ministry of Economy and Finance is one of an unequivocal place, a sometimes besieged but most of the time conquering power fortress. The article analyses the mechanisms of this domination and its limits. On the one hand, it shows that the power of the ministry stems from its central role in the reorientation of many major public policies and, on the other, it stresses the importance of its organisational fragmentation between numerous historical directorates which tend to be autonomous and in charge of policies that are often competing and contradictory. However, these centrifugal tendencies are constrained by numerous initiatives pointing to integration and coordination, such as the strength of the networks and the ethos of the ministry, in addition to the permanent movement of absorption and fusion of organisations.
