This document tries to schematize the basic concepts studied in the economic theory to evaluate life conditions of people. We show the different approaches of the old and new welfare economics and we conclude that the economic theory has arrived at a concept of welfare and justice extensively defined that allows to evaluate the agents in a distinct way and it also permits to consider alternative approaches when we are dealing with conditions of life. *********************************************************************** El presente documento intenta esquematizar los conceptos que han sido estudiados en la teoría económica y que son necesarios para evaluar las condiciones de vida de las personas. Se estudian las distintas posturas que se enmarcan tanto dentro de la vieja como de la nueva economía del bienestar y se concluye que la teoría económica ha llegado a un concepto de bienestar y justicia ampliamente definido que permite evaluar de una manera distinta a los agentes y que también, permite considerar posturas alternativas cuando se habla de condiciones de vida.
