Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Industriebetriebslehre, be aware: 2,3, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität - Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg, fifty two Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Durch einen dramatischen Einbruch der finanziellen Mittel im Bundeswehretat hat sich die Auftragsvergabe an die wehrtechnische Industrie erheblich verringert.

Jedoch bildet gerade dieser Er-halt von Mindestkapazitäten aus technologischer Sicht die Grundlage für technologi-sches und technischen knowledge in der wehrtechnischen Industrie.

Der Verlust dieses wehrtechnischen knowledge führt unweigerlich zu einem langsamen Sterben der hochqualifizierten wehrtechnischen Unternehmen und deren Arbeitsplätze.

Diese drohende Existenznot veränderte in den 90iger Jahren das Gefüge der gesamten wehrtechnischen Industrie in Deutschland. Einige Unternehmen zogen sich aus dem wehrtechnischen Geschäftsfeld zurück, andere verringerten ihre Kapazitäten und wieder andere bildeten nationale oder internationale Kooperationen und Fusionen.

Diese vertieften Kooperationen der deutschen Rüstungsindustrie zur materiellen Be-darfsdeckung der Bundeswehr haben dabei aus politischen, militärischen und wirt-schaftlichen Gesichtspunkten einen hohen Stellenwert.

Im Verlauf der Arbeit soll hierbei nun untersucht werden, welche Arten und Formen der Kooperation, insbesondere im Bereich der Forschung und Entwicklung, in der wehr-technischen Industrie in Deutschland vorhanden sind und welche genauen Ziele damit verfolgt werden. Dabei sollen auch die Hintergründe und Ursachen dieser Kooperationsbildungen genauer beleuchtet werden.

Sans cesse citée, mais rarement lue, l’œuvre d’Adam Smith est victime de nombreux contresens. Elle est aussi souvent trahie par le jeu des récupérations idéologiques qui font d’elle une référence ultime justifiant toutes les dérives libérales. 
C’est oublier l’essentiel. Certes, Adam Smith, peut être considéré comme le fondateur de l’économie politique et le père du libéralisme. Mais il se voyait également comme un philosophe ethical, écrivant aussi bien des essais relatifs à l’histoire des sciences, à l’esthétique et au droit. Sa pensée forme un tout – un système – et on ne saurait séparer los angeles Richesse des countries de la Théorie des sentiments moraux. 
D’où l’intérêt du présent ouvrage qui intègre cette size philosophique et pré-sociologique. Il en ressort une belief complètement renouvelée du rôle de l. a. puissance publique, ainsi que des mécanismes de marché. Loin de défendre le seul intérêt des individus, Adam Smith valorise essentiellement l. a. liberté et l. a. justice, tout en critiquant le système mercantile. 

Jean-Daniel Boyer est agrégé de sciences économiques et sociales, maître de conférences en sciences économiques à l’UFR des sciences sociales de l’Université de Strasbourg.
