Abstract

In this paper we shall discuss the concept of social economy in a broader perspective. It includes the economic aspects of life, but also the political aspects. Between the two there is a relation. The social economy is a mixed organizational system. It is not strictly related to the market, nor to the state. Therefore it belongs to neither capitalism nor central planning economy. Its economic weight in Europe is still marginal (5%-10% of GDP), but nevertheless important, since it enhances a new form of social and economic organization. It seems appealing to a future when technology and compound interest will largely solve the problem of "primum vivere" .
