Résumé: Cet essai examine les effets du capital social sur la performance de l’entreprise. Les données empiriques sont composées de 101 entreprises de la République Populaire de Chine. Nous trouvons que le capital social collectif exerce des effets signifiants sur leur performance de marché. Cependant, il n’y a pas d’évidence qui montre que le capital social produit des effets signifiants sur la performance financière de l’entreprise. Nous trouvons aussi que l’influence du capital social sur la performance de marché des entreprises privées s’avère plus forte que sur les entreprises d’Etat.
