With his research, he is interested in local development processes as the construction of territorial identities that imply the affirmation of rights (ontological reason) through the strengthening of associative and democratic forms of production. In this direction, he bases what he calls an “economic phenomenology” that aims to observe the economy from the relationship between subjects and materiality that presupposes “functions, ideas, concepts” and the affirmation of the “relational rights of a democratic society.” , which defines an ontological reason as opposed to utilitarian reason. He published several books and scientific articles where he develops concepts such as “ethical social capital”, “socialization and economic democratization”, “demand for people's rights”, “meso-economics” and “the principles of economic phenomenology”. Among his latest books are “The economy is a social phenomenon. Principles of economic phenomenology” (2019) published with Eudeba, “Lupi e agnelli. Societá capitaiste e vie d'uscita” (2017) published with Jaca Book.
