Culture et accumulation du capital : une étude empirique dans le contexte social haïtien

Abstract : The literature has identified a set of factors explaining the accumulation of capital. However, little attention has been paid to the impact of cultural beliefs. This paper, based on economic science, uses data collected from 207 haitian formal sector firms to develop and test a model of capital accumulation integrating socio-cultural traits, including life in the present moment, fatalism, primacy of the hereafter and mutual assistance. The results reveal that the primacy of the beyond, life in the present moment and mutual aid have negative and significant impacts on accumulation of capital. And, fatalism has positive and significant effects on this variable.
