Abstract

This paper exposes the aristotelian concept of technique to analize, from it, the difference between economics and chrematistics. It suggests that the singular simbolic nature of money is the key to order one to another, and both in order to politics. It concluyes noting the contrast between modern's and aristotelian attitude to solve the main problem of chrematistics: the absence of limit.
