In accordance with a new paradigm, the authors named it „healthy whole common living”, that includes the significance of both concepts, as living spirits of human biology inside the frame of institutional, social and educational biology. From this point of view, wealth and poverty, employment and unemployment, inflation and crisis, etc. as phenomena of the living world have their causality roots inside the nature and society, „US”, inside the way how we react to what happens to us or around us. Through the concept of „US” we characterize the inside of human nature, as homeostasis of our behavior, inside the communities where we live, organizations where we work, families that we love and institutional environment where we act. Also, in the concept of US”, we incorporate the environment where we survive, fight or and /adapt. The interaction of these living subsystems make the system of „US”, as the whole living common, where each of us and together we can undertake the liberties that make wealthy or poverty that fulfill life, as lived life, work and love. Human wealth and poverty are, in our opinion, liberties that we reached with our wisdom and awareness, from the point of view of the fulfillment of three human life imperatives. They do not drop from heaven, they are not the result of human will, but they are the product of our awareness of human life sense in society.
