DESCRIPTION

Ethics, argue the contributors to this book, plays an important role in economics. Economists have ethical values that help shape the way they work; economic actors have ethical values that help shape their behavior; and economic institutions and policies impact people differently, so that different ethical evaluations must supplement economic evaluations. In Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy, a host of distinguished philosophers and economists investigate the interaction between ethics and economics, both in economic theory and economic policy. This is a very important book for students and scholars of economics, philosophy, public policy, and those concerned with the way these fields interrelate.
