Download L'invenzione dell'economia by Serge Latouche PDF

By Serge Latouche

Dall’autore del Breve trattato sulla decrescita serena, ecco un saggio di interrogazione radicale sul terreno di una delle «invenzioni» cruciali della modernità.
Come si è formato il nostro «immaginario economico», l. a. nostra visione economica del mondo? Perché oggi vediamo il mondo attraverso i prismi dell’utilità, del lavoro, della concorrenza, della crescita illimitata? Che cosa ha portato l’Occidente a inventare il valore produttività, il valore denaro, il valore competizione, e a costruire un mondo in cui nulla ha più valore, e tutto ha un prezzo?
Serge Latouche ritorna qui alle origini di questa economia che i primi economisti definivano l. a. «scienza sinistra», e articolando l. a. sua argomentazione in prospettiva storico-filosofica, mostra come si è plasmata los angeles nostra ossessione utilitarista e quantitativa, e ci permette così non solo di gettare uno sguardo nuovo sul nostro mondo, ma soprattutto di affrontarne l. a. sfida sul piano di valori davvero fondamentali come libertà, giustizia, equità.
