Protected spare parts: are purchasing power problems soluble in the competition?

Gilets Jaunes handling spare parts
On March 5, after referring to the pope of liberalism Friedrich Hayek, the French PM Edouard Philippe, in the context of the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the French Competition Authority, continued his speech as follows: "Competition is obviously not the solution to all problems. But it is one of the solutions to the purchasing power problem that our society is facing (wink Gilets Jaunes). While the State of course has the fiscal and budgetary levers to meet this challenge, we must also tackle another aspect: that of "constrained" spending. These expenses that we cannot do without and whose every unjustified increase is like a hidden tax. The time has come to absorb some of these "blind spots of purchasing power"." 
 
In fact, it will be recalled that in 2012, through a self-referral, the ADLC took an interest in the maintenance and repair markets and, on statistical bases whose fragility was demonstrated by the manufacturers and their lawyers at the time (1), claimed that "in a market of EUR 1,8-2,6 billion, the lifting of the protection of visible spare parts could generate an average gain for consumers of around EUR 200 million'.

1. Introduction
To think of history is to reflect on structuring models of a multidimensional analysis, sometimes opening a comprehensive outcome and enabling the emergence of a pattern or even patterns, with which we can illuminate a cohesive narrative,
The new economic and social history places cyclical oscillation at the forefront of its research, and rests on its duration: it has linked itself to the mirage, and also to the reality of cyclical rises and falls in prices. There is, now, alongside the narrative (or the traditional "recitative"), a recitation of the conjuncture that focuses on the past over long periods: ten, twenty or fifty years. (BRAUDEL, 1965, p.263)
A long duration, conceptualized by Fernand Braudel, french historian, can be applied in the present work in an effort to draw, from a specific object, the automotive battery, showing a path of technological correlations, oscillations and a material arrangement routed, nourishing itself in social arrangements, economic and with an unpredictable hint of the observed history. lire la suite
