1997). The issue of the origin of the rent put emphasis on the specific skills of the employees in addition to the managerial capital. As emphasized by Rajan and Zingales (1998a), it plays a determining role, particularly in the New Economy. However, the specificity of human capital, if it is the basis for the rent, renders it vulnerable to attempts at expropriation. The governance system is therefore justified by its ability to protect this capital. The firm becomes a nexus of specific investments: a combination of co-specific assets and persons9 (Zingales, 1998, 2000; Rajan and Zingales, 1998a, 2000).

However, the process of value creation itself remains unexplored. Also, Fama and Jensen (1983a, 1983b), Jensen and Meckling (1992) or Jensen (1998) are satisfied with their restricted view that organizational architecture, the forms of ownership and governance systems are organized in such a way as to optimize the use of knowledge, the latter not being truly differentiated from information. The models of Rajan and Zingales (1998a) and Blair and Stout (1999) offer little more. If the first model considers that the organizational rent is due to specific investments made by the different stakeholders and the second model insists on the importance of both vertical and horizontal cooperation to produce this rent, we may not really view this analysis of the process of value creation in terms of comparative advantages linked to production.
