    Andrew M. Yuengert (2006). Model Selection and Multiple Research Goals: The Case of Rational Addiction. Journal of Economic Methodology 13 (1):77-96.
    A comparison of rational addiction and time inconsistency models of addiction highlights the complexities of model selection when researchers have goals in addition to empirical fit. Although currently the two models of addiction are underdetermined by data, each offers a different understanding of addiction; moreover, the two models offer starkly different policy implications. When the goals of understanding and policy usefulness are added to the goal of empirical fit, a more complex account of model selection is needed. First, the principle (...)

  3. Andrew Yuengert (2004). The Boundaries of Technique: Ordering Positive and Normative Concerns in Economic Research. Lexington Books.
    Exploring recent controversies over the role of ethics in economics, The Boundaries of Technique encourages scholars and students to discover and debate the ways in which economics is insulated from ethics, and the ways in which it is dependent upon it. Ultimately, by bringing readers to a deeper awareness of the intrinsic involvement of the individual and the responsibility of moral choice, Yuengert makes an invaluable contriubtion to the study and practice of economics.

    Andrew Yuengert (2002). Why Did the Economist Cross the Road? The Hierarchical Logic of Ethical and Economic Reasoning. Economics and Philosophy 18 (2):329-349.
    The debate over whether or not economics is value-free has focused on the fact-value distinction: “is” does not imply “ought.” This paper approaches the role of ethics in economics from a Thomistic perspective, focusing not on the content of economic analysis, but on the actions taken by economic researchers. Positive economics, when it satisfies Aristotle's definition of technique, enjoys a certain autonomy from ethics, an autonomy limited by a technique's dependence for guidance and justification on ethical reflection. The modern isolation (...)

    Andrew Yuengert (2011). Economics and Interdisciplinary Exchange in Catholic Social Teaching and “Caritas in Veritate”. Journal of Business Ethics 100 (S1):41-54.
    The social sciences, and particularly economics, play an important role in business. This article reviews the account of the interdisciplinary conversation between Catholic Social Teaching and the social sciences (especially economics) over the last century, and describes Benedict XVI’s development of this account in Caritas in Veritate . Over time the popes recognized that the technical approach of economics was a barrier to fruitful collaboration between economics and Catholic Social Teaching, both because the economic approach is reductionist, and because modern (...)
