This paper reviews the contributions of the Regulation School. From the seminal
works of Michel Aglietta, the paper discusses the innovations of this approach and the
responses that this school gives for the following topics: the passage from growth to stagnation;
the difference in prosperity in different countries on the same historical moment; the
ever-changing characteristics of crisis. The concepts of regulation and crisis themselves are
analyzed and some critics are also made.
