The use of goods, the relationship between consumption and happiness - The essay analizes the topicality of homo oeconomicus, suggesting some sociological reflections on the consumption patterns in the global society, alternatives to those proposed by the economics approach. From the processes of individualization is looming a new subjectivity capable of responsible choices, that lead the basis of a different action theory for an economy of social responsibility. The citizen-consumer as homo civicus, is meant as a subject with a moral sense that becomes the assumption for a socio economic development inclusive and sustainable.
Keywords: Happiness, consumption, homo civicus, responsibility, sustainable development
