Summary

The economy is set in such a way that advantages are enjoyed by a minority of privileged whilst the inconvenients affect a mayority of desperate people. Thus, the privileged get dehumanised because they are only acquainted with ‘exchange values’; and what makes us really human (reason, equality and solidarity) are not ‘exchange values’ but values of another type. And so, the empoverished also get dehumanised because they live in a constant stroke to avoid drowning in the inmense sea of material needs. Taking as a reference Varoufakis’ book, “Talking to my daughter about the economy. A brief history of capitalism”, González Faus reflects on the anthropological and theological consequences of the actual economic system.
