  1. ETHICS AND ECONOMIC THEORY

    ETHICS AND ECONOMIC THEORY

    Kurt W. Rothschild
    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.

  2. THE MARKET, COMPETITION AND DEMOCRACY

    THE MARKET, COMPETITION AND DEMOCRACY

    Stavros Ioannides
    The Market, Competition and Democracy provides a comprehensive critique of neo-Austrian economics, from the work of von Mises and Hayek in the 1920s to the present day. It is argued that, in their effort to deprive the state of any power to intervene in the economy, the neo-Austrians are led to a rejection of democratic politics and, thus, instead of promoting liberty, their ideas lead to an authoritarian political structure.
