Title: A Técnica Como Capital E O Capital Humano Genético
Author: Lopez-Ruiz O.
Abstract: The paper discusses the logical implications of thinking the technological change as a form of capital, as suggested by T. W. Schultz for the aims of economical analysis. We argue that proposals like this, made by the founder of the human capital theory, are currently opening space to think the human as a form of capital - even before the birth of a human being. We consider what Michel Foucault called "the political problem of genetics" in his The Birth of Biopolitics, and reflect about the social and economical implications of genetic information, in particular, when the object of study of economics is extended not just to some human attributes, now considered as a form of capital, but also to technical progress itself.
