    For many people "solidarity" has become a meaningless word used in slogans - too often used without leading to any economic consequences. We show in this paper conditions under which solidarity can be a powerful instrument. In a solidary action, an individual in a group contributes to a series of actions that aims for a reallocation of scarce resources. The willingness to contribute is mainly influenced by the efficiency of the objective of the solidary action, and is enhanced by feelings of mutual exchange (solidarity) within a group. --solidarity,altruism,dynamic,mutual

    As Kosick maintained, homo oeconomicus is not only a theoretical aberration, it is an aberration of reality. The idea of human beings that Neo-classical Economics portrays is, without a doubt, a degeneration, and does little as the explicative axis of current society and even less in relation to the structural crisis in which we are living

    In the late 1990s, the Solidary Economy started to integrate initiatives of municipal governments to generate work and income in Brazil. Thus, this article has the purposeto reflect the process of institutionalization of public policy of Solidary Economy in S√£o Carlos city, S√£o Paulo state. Different forms of institutionalization are addressed: theimplantation of the Solidary Economy Public Center; the Municipal Law of Solidary Economy (which institutionalizes the Solidary Economy Support Program); the Municipal Council and Solidary Economy Fund; public spaces for commercialization and provision of services by Solidary Economy Enterprises (SEE) to the municipality. One of the guidelines of that public policy was to strengthen the organization of the Solidary Economy movement, considering that the participation of the beneficiaries of this policy in the discussions and decisions is essential for the construction of the Solidary Economy as a development strategy. This process, which respects the diversity and people‚Äôs reality, dialogue and effective collective participation, represented a differential in the form of management and provide meeting the SEE demands, ensuring more effectiveness in public policies. The need of transferring the focus on public managers, responsible for the support, to the workers, was the challenge. In S√£o Carlos, two factors were preponderant to progress in overcoming this challenge: the mobilization of concrete commercialization actions (generation of income) and the organization of Solidary Economy workers as a social movement.No final da d√©cada de 1990, a Economia Solid√°ria passou a integrar iniciativas de governos municipais para gera√ß√£o de trabalho e renda no Brasil. Assim, este artigo tem por objetivo retratar o processo de institucionaliza√ß√£o da pol√≠tica p√ļblica de Economia Solid√°ria no munic√≠pio de S√£o Carlos/SP. S√£o abordadas formas diferentes de institucionaliza√ß√£o: a implanta√ß√£o do Centro P√ļblico de Economia Solid√°ria; a Lei Municipal de Economia Solid√°ria (que institucionaliza o Programa de Fomento √ɬ† Economia Solid√°ria); o Conselho Municipal e Fundo de Economia Solid√°ria; e os espa√ßos p√ļblicos de comercializa√ß√£o e presta√ß√£o de servi√ßos por Empreendimentos de Economia Solid√°ria (EES) ao munic√≠pio. Uma das diretrizes da referida pol√≠tica p√ļblica foi fortalecer a organiza√ß√£o do movimento de Economia Solid√°ria, por considerar que a participa√ß√£o dos benefici√°rios dessa pol√≠tica nas discuss√Ķes e decis√Ķes √© essencial para a sua constru√ß√£o como estrat√©gia de desenvolvimento. Esse processo, que respeitou a diversidade e a realidade vivida pelas pessoas, proporcionou di√°logo e efetiva participa√ß√£o coletiva, representou um diferencial na forma de gest√£o e assegurou o atendimento √ɬ†s demandas dos EES, garantindo maior efetividade nas pol√≠ticas p√ļblicas. A necessidade de transferir o protagonismo dos gestores p√ļblicos, respons√°veis pelo fomento, para os/as trabalhadores/as era o desafio. Em S√£o Carlos, dois fatores foram preponderantes para avan√ßar na supera√ß√£o desse desafio: a mobiliza√ß√£o de a√ß√Ķes concretas de comercializa√ß√£o (gera√ß√£o de renda) e a organiza√ß√£o enquanto movimento social dos/as trabalhadores/as da Economia Solid√°ria

    Symbolic struggles over solidarity in times of crisis: trade unions, civil society actors and the political far right in Austria

    As a consequence of the recent financial and economic crisis, social cohesion and integration are in jeopardy all over Europe. In this context, scholars also speak of decreasing solidarity, which is defined as a normative obligation to help each other and to make sacrifices to reach common goals. By taking the empirical example of Austria, we argue that the meaning of solidarity is increasingly being contested. Various collective actors such as trade unions, civil society actors, but also right-wing populist parties are engaged in symbolic struggles over solidarity. To show this, we examine the different concepts and foundations of solidarity and analyse where and why they conflict with each other, referring to recent debates on political issues, such as the needs-based minimum benefit system and the access to the labour market for refugees

    Exchange is a condition for the reproduction. Production and consumption, mediated by distribution and by exchange, are inseparable spheres as states Karl Marx in Introduction to the Political Economy Critic (2008). Identifying and analyzing the exchange forms in the Solidary Economy and its relation with the space produced by capitalism brings to us a new understanding possibility about the social reproduction conditions. The objective of the text is to develop a critical analysis of the conditions of the exchange forms reproduction of the Solidary Economy, especially of the commerce and solidary consumption
