FM Module #21. Expenditure

How does a person manage excess resources? To what extent do we resemble the simplest living systems in our (ir)rationality? The new episode of the FM Module by FM Einheit considers the fundamental principles of spending.

In his book La Part maudite, the French philosopher Georges Bataille writes:
“The living organism, in a situation determined by the play of energy on the surface of the globe ordinarily receives more energy than is necessary for maintaining life; the excess energy (wealth) can be used for the growth of a system (e.g. an organism); if the system can no longer grow, or if the excess cannot be completely absorbed in its growth, it must necessarily be lost without profit; it must be spent, willingly or not, gloriously or catastrophically.”
