Enrichissement: Une critique de la marchandise

Arnaud Esquerre and Luc Boltanski

Arnaud Esquerre and Luc Boltanski recount the historic movement which has, since the last quarter of the 20th century, profoundly modified the way in which wealth is created in Western European countries, characterized on the one hand by deindustrialization and on the other by the growing exploitation of resources that have taken on an unprecedented importance. This new “enrichment” form of capitalism is closely associated with the arts, culture, the sale of antique and heritage items, the creation of foundations and museums, the luxury sector, and tourism. The constant interactions between these different domains allow for an understanding of how they generate a profit: they all share a reliance upon the exploitation of the past.
