True Wealth


  • Margherita Pascucci New York University


The core of my research is poverty in relation to the genesis of capital.
I contextualized the reflection on poverty in relation to the gnoseological error of capital, a gnoseological error which is immediately also an ethical and ontological one. The thesis at which I arrived is that the productive mechanism of capital contains within itself a gnoseological error which causes the production of poverty instead of ‘true’ wealth : true wealth being the common good for and of all. Poverty is the litmus test of this gnoseological, and therefore ontological, ethical and political error of capital.
