EoC - Economy of Communion

Welcome to the official EOC website!

What are the motivations of a young person to dedicate an important space in his life to the Economy of Communion and to live it with passion? Interview with Francisco Buchara

by Carolina Carbonell

Fran Buchara voto tesi rid

We are talking with Francisco Buchara, Fran, as his friends call him. The eldest of six children in his family, born 26 years ago in San Nicolás (Argentina). In 2012 he took part in the 1st International Summer School in Lisbon. Graduated in company administration, he is now responsible for "Productive Development" in the town council of San Nicolás. His entrepreneurial project entitled "Sustainable Hangers" was developed with the help of two other young Argentinians and it won the prize for best Business Plan in a competition organised by several Argentinian institutions. A few months ago he presented his thesis entitled "How to transmit the principles of the Economy of Communion in a company? Through the organisational chart and internal relations" in front of a very serious and demanding jury.

The Tree of Life - Abram did not see but believed - and became righteous. And he became Abraham and a father, too.

by Luigino Bruni

published in Avvenire on 06/04/2014

Logo Albero della vitaThere was he who was great through his strength, and he who was great through his wisdom, and he who was great through his hopes, and he who was great through his love; but Abraham was greater than all of these". (Søren Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling).

After the flood and after Babel, the fortified city in which humanity had sought the wrong type of salvation without diversity and dispersion on the fertile land, the covenant and salvation are continued with Abram, who leaves his father's house and starts out on a journey, trusting a voice that is calling him.


The Tree of Life - Away from Imperial Towers: dispersed and saved

by Luigino Bruni

published in Avvenire on 30/03/2014

Logo Albero della vitaMany, many years were passed in building the tower. It reached so great a height that it took a year to mount to the top. A brick was, therefore, more precious in the sight of the builders than a human being. If a man fell down, and met his death, none took notice of it, but if a brick dropped, they wept, because it would take a year to replace it. So intent were they upon accomplishing their purpose that they would not permit a woman to interrupt herself in her work of brick-making when the hour of travail came upon her. Moulding bricks she gave birth to her child, and, tying it round her body in a sheet, she went on moulding bricks." (L. Ginzberg, The Legends of the Jews)


The Tree of Life – The evil cannot triumph if there is the ark of the righteous

by Luigino Bruni

published in Avvenire on 23/03/2014

Logo Albero della vitaThere were two completely strange creatures among those that found refuge in the ark. Among those who sought asylum with Noah, there was Falsehood, which was rejected because it did not have a companion: in fact, the animals were only allowed to come into the ark in pairs. So he went in search of a mate and met Loss, who joined him on a condition of getting all the other would earn from then on. So the two were allowed in the ark. When they left the ark, Falsehood saw that everything he could scrape together disappeared at once, and went to ask for an explanation to his mate. But in response Loss said to him: "Didn't we agree that all your earnings would be mine?" So Falsehood remained empty-handed (from the Midrash on the Psalms, in The Legends of the Jews).
