The economic influence of young people in France its philosophical implications

Date of publication: June 15, 1980


Current French society defines itself increasingly in terms of children, because it is highly centred on the family, on what we might call the "new family". In the pages that follow, we shall first examine the importance of this influence on the economic decisions of French families. We shall then get rid of some false explanations, "logical" (the pocket money budget) or "affective" (the pediarchy: "the aggressiveness of young people" or "the failure of parents" in an attempt to understand the functioning of the new French family and the generalisation of relations of partnership among its members, including and already to a very large degree) in the economic sphere.
