Market Capitalism and Moral Values
Proceedings of Section F (Economics) of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, 1993. The Section F Series, British Association for the Advancement of Science
Does economic analysis need to incorporate a more rounded and ethical view of individuals? What is the ethical status of market capitalism? How should ethical and economic considerations be weighed together?
Market Capitalism and Moral Values brings together a distinguished group of academics and policy makers who provide detailed discussion of some of the key issues at the intersection of economics and ethics. This volume focuses on the effect of moral beliefs on economic conduct, recognizing that beliefs and moral codes act as restraints on economic agents just as much as limited budgets or institutional environment.
These essays combine academic rigour and clarity of presentation in addressing some of the foundational questions concerning the morality of both our economic system and economic analysis. With contributions from leading academics, commentators and policymakers such as Samuel Brittan, Nigel Lawson, Amartya Sen and Robert Skidelsky, this volume will be welcomed as a stimulating, authoritative discussion of interest to all those concerned with the ethical dimension of market capitalism.
