The purpose of this article is to study the manner in which firms promote a risk management adapted to current economic changes, while shifting from an old challenge (the role of indebtedness in maximizing firm value) to a new one: financial fragility and vulnerability to crises. Our premises were: on the one hand, in the context of major imbalances, an increase in debt financing amplifies risks, causing firms to become more financially fragile; on the other hand, internal financing, being more

The study also emphasises that the current economic and financial system needs to be financed more prudently, in order to sustain a more stable and durable growth rate. Thus, previous coordinates regarding the optimization of firms' financial structure need to be redefined so as to ensure financial sustainability.
