Abstract: This paper's central argument considers that Keynesian inspired social contract that ruled, without credible opposition until the emergence of the globalization process does not fit well anymore the current situation. After a short description of the general lines of the Keynesian social contract and of the socioeconomic and geopolitical context that were linked with it, the broad characteristics of globalization are highlighted, mainly the trilogy of the Washington Consensus (deregulation, privatization and liberalization) that is crutial to explain the emergence of the finantial tyranny and the subjugation of the Nation states to the so called market judgement. These changes bought about by the globalization process have been fueled by the deep transformation of the geopolitical context resulting from the collapse of the Soviet Union, and are at the origin of the prevalence of orthodox finantial logic that, due to its intrinsic global reach, contradicts the territorial basis of the Keynesian social contract. At a lower level the specificity of the agriculture and agro-food sector are highlighted.
