    Les nécessités ou « logiques des choses », dont il est ici question, ne sont perceptibles qu'en remontant aux problèmes fondamentaux de l'économie politique. L'on peut saisir, alors, d'un côté une théorie économique classique qui domine la représentation, et de l'autre la réalité régie par la finance et le productivisme. Sur la base de la monnaie fiduciaire, la création monétaire devient incontrôlable. Les entreprises rivalisent d'efforts et d'ingéniosités pour capter, ces flux monétaires, et la société toute entière est soumise au « travailler plus pour gagner plus » pour espérer atteindre la norme de consommation qui évolue constamment. The needs or the “logics of the things” are perceptible while going back to the fundamental problems of political economy. Thus, we can sketch on the one hand the classical economics which dominates the representation, and on the other hand the reality governed by finance and productivism. On the basis of fiduciary currency, monetary creation becomes uncontrolable. Enterprises provide efforts and develop clever means to capture, these monetary flows, and the whole society is subjected to “working more to gain more” to hope reaching the standard of consumption which moves constantly.
