This writing corresponds to two conferences. One carried out in "La casa encendida" in Madrid within the cycle "The challenges of the XXI century: another world is necessary" in June 2010 and the second one carried out in the course "Readings and alternative solutions to the crisis" within the framework of the Summer Courses of the General Foundation of the Complutense University, El Escorial, July 2010. It is divided into two parts. The first presents a proposal made from feminist economics that makes care work visible and recognizes and, in the second, some first attempts to analyze the possibility of integrating domestic and care work into economic models or processes are outlined. revealing the problems that this would imply.
