Journal of Business Ethics 66 (1):43 - 51 (2006)
|Abstract||This article discusses the possibility of an economic foundation for a work and savings ethic. In particular, James M. <span class='Hi'>Buchanan</span> has, in his late works, endorsed traditional ‘Puritan’ demands for working and saving more, while arguing that this is beneficial for all members of a society. I will question <span class='Hi'>Buchanan</span>’s analysis of the ‘Puritan’ ethic both in normative and methodological respects before aiming at a constructive interpretation.|
