Synopsis

This distinguished book provides a critical assessment of the relationship between economic theory, scientific objectivity and ethics.



The main purpose of economic science is to analyse and `explain' the economic process but not necessarily to pass judgement as to whether this process is `good' or `bad'. However, in practice it is very difficult for the economist to study the `laws' of economics without ever touching ethical questions. It is shown that economic theories - despite avowals of scientific objectivity - contain implicitly or explicitly many aspects which have ethical implications.



Making extensive use of real-life examples and offering a new perspective on the ethical dimensions of economic analysis, this book will prove essential reading for economists and philosophers alike.
