Abstract

CANTE, Freddy. ECONOMÍA POLÍTICA DEL AMOR. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2013, vol.32, n.59, pp.43-66. ISSN 0121-4772.

In this critical article three findings are shown: first: although love is a moral value, an expression of empathy and altruism, its performance and supply are bounded because the problem of scarcity (material and institutional limitations); second: love is a form of power (integrative power), which is frequently combined with others powers (of exchange and coercion); third: in the extremes of pure public goods and of privatization (monopolies, positional goods, and clubs) the love dries up.

Keywords : love; power; welfare; conflict; social values; altruism.
