Le sens de l'essentiel : pratiques économiques et rationalisations ordinaires chez les jeunes Français des classes populaires

Abstract : Some young people of the Fench lower-class are faced with limited financial resources. While some of them get by thanks to parental financial support, others have to rely on social assistance from the State. Based on an approach using Halbwach's work, this article highlights how they manage their budgets thanks to economical food choices as well as techniques and tactics adapted to penury. Prudence and parcimony- qualities acquired in childhood- shape their perceptions of the present and the future as well as their relationships with others, and this contributes to a specific ethos with an ascetic dimension analyzed by the authors.
