This work is part of an investigation that integrates two personal interests. On one side, to examine different studies about the subjecti- ve elements around the money issue (Weatherford 1998; Hopenhayn 2002; Zelizer 2011). And also, there is a growing concern from the Anthropology point of view, to reconstruct different social meanings of reality, given by subjects from their own context. In this sense, modernity concepts play a fundamental theoretical role in order to comprehend the reference point, basis of cultural world transformation that has been organized around sacrificial economy and techno-scientific economy of capitalism, and around communications and relations among them.
