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.

Review: On Ethics and Economics

Reseña de usuario  - Hendrik - Goodreads

I've had to read the book several times to start grasping the meaning of the ideas exposed within. There are still more times that this book will need to be re-read, but I think the author demonstrates a clear and witty insight into the science of economics. Leer reseña completa
