Considering identity like a social construction of equalities and differences we notice the logical demand to the construction of equivalence in the process of identities formation, what enable us to inquire about relations between identity and economy, based on the assumption that both of theoretical territories are based on exchange relationships between the social agents evolved. Observing comparatively the economical development across the history and evolution of the possibilities of identities expression we postulate three different possible identities, witch we call, mirroring, belonging and individuality, corresponding to three different moments of economical development: tribes, slaveries and capitalism. Possible implications of this theoretical framework are discussed.
