The aim of this article is to investigate the internal dynamics of the international market of aesthetic production, focused on the Giovanni Arrighi’s studies on historical capitalism. This essay traces the history of the production of aesthetic likelihood as an expression of symbolic power, especially linking it to the cycles of financial expansion. In this reading, the likelihood will be grasped (as opposed to the concept of realism) as a result of the investment of surplus money, either directly or indirectly, on the aesthetic dimension.
