Understanding moral philosophy can help one to do economics better, and philosophers can learn by drawing on economic insights and analytical tools. This book argues that standard views of rationality lead economists to espouse questionable moral principles, and discusses methods of economic evaluation in terms of welfare and other moral criteria. It also contains a brief discussion of the relevance of social choice and game theory to philosophy. There is a glossary and at the end of each chapter are suggestions for further reading.

Book Description:

Arguing that standard views of rationality lead economists to espouse questionable moral principles, this text discusses economic evaluation in regard to welfare and other moral criteria. It also contains a brief discussion of the relevance of social choice and game theory to philosophy.

Review:

"As survey, this book will fill gaps in almost every ethicist's reading and prove enormously helpful for students of the field and as the basis for an advanced undergraduate or graduate course in ethics and economics or philosophy and economics." Peter Danielson, Ethics
