Produktbeschreibung

In this elegant critique, Amartya Sen argues that welfare economics can be enriched by paying more explicit attention to ethics, and that modern ethical studies can also benefit from a closer contact with economies. He argues further that even predictive and descriptive economics can be helped by making more room for welfare-economic considerations in the explanation of behaviour.

Kritik

"Sen is one of the true pioneers in modern economics. He has, in effect, created a new branch of the subject... which might one day change mainstream economics beyond recognition." The Economist
"Professor Sen s thoughts on both philosophy and economics are not only highly original but they are ... presented with a compelling and consummate literary skill." Times Higher Education Supplement

"Sen has never acknowledged a boundary between economics and ethics. He brings philosophical arguments to bear where they are needed in economics, and combines them skillfully with formal analysis." London Review of Books
