The disappearance of “fraternity” from economic discussion: does it matter?

Giorgia Lucchini (LUMSA)


The aim of the paper is to discuss whether the disappearance of the term "fraternity" from the economic discussion matters or not. To this purpose, I will take into consideration terms sometimes employed in economics such as "mutual advantage", "sympathy", "fellow-feeling", "social justice" and so on that are candidate synonyms of "fraternity" and I will focus on their meanings in order to establish if they can be considered as such.
