CAMARA, Guilherme Dornelas; CHAFIM BRETAS, Arthur  e  DAKPOGAN, Andrée-Shelsea. Bonds generated by homeless people in economic initiatives in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Psicoperspectivas [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.2, pp.56-67. ISSN 0718-6924.

In Porto Alegre, homeless people or those with homeless background organize themselves in fronts that contradict their negative representation in the media and challenge the consolidated academic knowledge about them. This article analyzes the bond established by these people with two collective economic initiatives of the city, and how this contributes to the satisfaction of their material and subjective needs, and to their strengthening as ethical subjects. We articulate categories of the proposal for an economy for life, which situate and highlight the relationship between economy and ethics. A qualitative research with participant observation was carried out, inspired by the technique of the operative groups, the data collected was related to the theoretical reference due to its intertextuality. Among the findings, it is worth mentioning that joining a collective economic initiative can strengthen social bonds between homeless people or with homeless background; consensus and agreements between the members produce a new institutionality, based on solidarity, subordination of production to their material needs and mutual responsibility.

Palavras-chave : economy for life; ethics. group bond; homeless people.
