Our economic system has made itself invisible and eludes understanding. In recent years, we have often had little more than a diffuse and unsatisfactory feeling that something is going wrong. But what? Oeconomia reveals the rules of the game of capitalism and makes visible in an episodic narrative structure that paradoxically the economy only grows when we are in debt. Beyond the distanced phrases of media coverage, which ultimately make it impossible to understand the monstrous logic behind the basic structures of our everyday lives, Oeconomia sets out with great perspicacity and lucid stringency to break things down to the simple rules, to illuminate the capitalism of the present.
« Carmen Losman’s ingeniously disturbing journey into the dark heart of economic and monetary illusion is a must-see for anyone grappling with the sheer madness of life today. »(Modern Times)
