There is no day where no one tells us that the economy rules the world, the laws of profitability and the market is an absolute truth. Anyone who challenges this new religion is immediately treated as irresponsible. But human society can live without value other than market value? Taking his examples from the most varied areas - housing, employment, health, environment, food ... - Albert Jacquard demonstrates the evils of triumphant economism and fanatic who claims to govern us today. Economist and scientist, tireless defender of the right to housing, he exhibited here in rigorous and clear pages, supported on a wide information, beliefs underlying its commitment. He invites us to reject the inhuman fate of economic fundamentalism.
For the famous geneticist, the fundamental error of economism is to reduce human activities to the production and consumption of goods capable of satisfying the needs of our organization; he is never given the other needs, those on which depends the happiness.
