SILVA, Lillian Nathalie Oliveira da  and  HENRIQUES, Rogério da Silva Paes. Money promoting satisfaction?: From political economy to psychic economy. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2019, vol.31, n.3, pp. 541-556. ISSN 0103-5665.

This work is a theoretical essay consisting in an analysis of money as a condenser of opposites in the human psyche, which is a conflicting component of satisfaction. It starts from political economy and its ascription of money as capital, capable of satisfying human needs. Contrast that with psychic economy, from a psychoanalytic perspective, which views money as a phallic attribute in its relations with the demand and desire of the subject affected by the "Trieb". The deceit represented by attempting to make up for the structural lack of the subject through money is denounced. We conclude that the capitalist mode of production, by trying to place the psychic economy at the service of the political economy, faces the resistance by the subject affected by the "Trieb".

Keywords : money; psychoanalysis; political economy; psychic economy; Trieb.
