  10. The Ethics of Competition

    The Ethics of Competition

    Christoph Lütge
    The concept of competition is frequently regarded with ambivalence. While its champions wholeheartedly endorse it for reasons of efficiency, critics believe competition undermines ethics. They denounce competitive thinking, call for modesty in profit-making, and rail against economisation. However, Christoph Lütge argues convincingly that intensified competition can work in favour of ethical goals, and that many criticisms of competition stem from inadequate understanding of how modern societies and economies function. The author illustrates his view with examples from ecology, healthcare and education, and concludes with a call for more entrepreneurial spirit. Learn More

    Edited by Kathleen E. Halvorsen, Chelsea Schelly, Robert Handler, Erin C. Pischke, Jessie L. Knowlton

  19. The Governance of Credit Rating Agencies

    The Governance of Credit Rating Agencies

    Andrea Miglionico
    The global crisis revealed that Credit Rating Agencies (CRAs) are capable of bringing about potential distortions in the financial sector, thereby resulting in a reduction in market confidence which, in turn, influences negotiations and expectations. CRAs need to be held accountable for lack of transparency and inaccurate ratings, however the existing regulatory framework does not secure adequate investor protection. This book provides a new and important contribution to research in the area, at a crucial time in the debate around financial regulation and investment regimes. Learn More
