Le Ministre des finances sous la Ve République : Contribution à l'étude du désenchantement d'une toute-puissance

Abstract : It is fashionable to admit, since the image emerges in many academic works, that the Minister of Finance is, under the Fifth Republic, a "super-minister whose influence counterbalances that of the Head of Government", a "second Prime Minister", or even a "universal minister". Thanks to his powers and skills, the Minister of Finance would have an unquestionable superiority that many consider unquestionable under the Fifth Republic. If the assertion of a power seems to emerge from the writings on the Minister of Finance under the Fifth Republic, an in-depth study reveals indisputable limits constraining him, calling into question this alleged hegemony within our institutions. Easements on all sides and more and more present attenuate this mythical image glorifying the function. This demonstration is carried out in two stages. Initially, it is established that there is no administrative hegemony of the Minister of Finance, in spite of certain particularities due to the financial matter. As an administrative authority, he is essentially comparable to an ordinary minister. Secondly, it is proven that there is indeed a certain political hegemony of the Minister of Finance. However, it weakened during the Fifth Republic, even if events failed to make it an ordinary political authority.
