  1. Extended Preferences and Interpersonal Comparisons: A New Account.Matthew D. Adler - 2014 - Economics and Philosophy 30 (2):123-162.
  2. Harsanyi 2.0.Matthew D. Adler - unknown
    How should we make interpersonal comparisons of well-being levels and differences? One branch of welfare economics eschews such comparisons, which are seen as impossible or unknowable; normative evaluation is based upon criteria such as Pareto or Kaldor-Hicks efficiency that require no interpersonal comparability. A different branch of welfare economics, for example optimal tax theory, uses “social welfare functions” to compare social states and governmental policies. Interpersonally comparable utility numbers provide the input for SWFs. But this scholarly tradition has never adequately (...)

  3. A New Perspective on Ethics, Ecology, and Economics.Donald L. Adolphson - 2004 - Journal of Business Ethics 54 (3):201-213.
    This paper introduces the important concept of a biophysical perspective on economics into the business ethics literature. The biophysical perspective recognizes that ecological processes determine what can be done in an economy and how best to do it. A biophysical perspective places the economic system into a larger context of the ecologic system. This changes the perception of ethical issues by identifying a larger scope of management decisions. The paper examines the changing ethical landscape in such issues as biotechnology, planned (...)

    This paper aims to analyze the role of personal identity in altruism. To this end, it starts by reviewing critically the growing literature on economics and identity. Considering the ambiguities that the concept of social identity poses, our proposal focuses on the concept of personal identity. A formal model to study how personal identity enters in individuals' utility function when facing a dictator game decision is then presented. Finally, this ?identity-based? utility function is studied experimentally. The experiment allows us to (...)

    Sabina Alkire shows how Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen's capability approach can be coherently---and practically---put to work in poverty reduction activities so that the voices and values of the poor matter. This provides economists, philosophers, theologians, and development practitioners with a way forward that addresses both theoretical and practical challenges.

    We examine individuals’ distributional orderings in a number of contexts. This is done by using a questionnaire-experiment that is presented to respondents in any one of seven “flavors” or interpretations of the basic distributional problem. The flavors include inequality, risk, social welfare and justice.

  13. A Theory of Justice for an Ecumenical Praxis: A Critique of Eurocentric Pseudo-Universals.Charles W. Amjad-ali - 1985 - Dissertation, Princeton Theological Seminary
    Since 1966 an impasse has emerged within the ecclesiastical and theological circles of the ecumenical movement. The dividing lines are drawn on a North South basis, and the point at issue is primarily the question of justice. ;In this dissertation we trace out the genealogy of this impasse by doing an archeology of the ecumenical movement, and comparing the movement with its surrounding context. We show that initially the ecumenical movement was started, and dominated by the Anglo-American Churches, and that (...)

  18. Ethical Assumptions in Economic Theory: Some Lessons From the History of Credit and Bankruptcy.Elizabeth Anderson - 2004 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 7 (4):347-360.
    This paper evaluates the economic assumptions of economic theory via an examination of the capitalist transformation of creditor–debtor relations in the 18th century. This transformation enabled masses of people to obtain credit without moral opprobrium or social subordination. Classical 18th century economics had the ethical concepts to appreciate these facts. Ironically, contemporary economic theory cannot. I trace this fault to its abstract representations of freedom, efficiency, and markets. The virtues of capitalism lie in the concrete social relations and social meanings (...)

    This paper summarizes and critiques Amartya Sen’s use of functionings and capabilities to evaluate inequality and poverty. He judges that “things” and “means” to acquire things are inadequate measurements of poverty. His approach keys upon the functionings that can be performed by the poor and the capability sets that are available to them from which they can choose. Sen’s strategy proposes to enlarge these sets and provide improved functionings within them. Although this approach is preferable to a bare income or (...)

Using it as a touchstone for the consideration of the place of ethics in the recent history of design, the collection offers a way into the issues which concern design decision-makers today. It offers previously unpublished research into diverse topics such as the investigation into the hitherto undiscovered designs for a utility vehicle, and it reveals a fresh perspective on the philosophy behind the concept of Utility as (...)

    ATA v. Schwartz is a classic torts case in Israeli caselaw.

Furthermore, it is the first case the Israeli Supreme Court dealt with arguments explicitly based on Coase, Calabresi and Posner - utterly rejecting them. The case has been used to explain that (...)

  49. The Pareto Principle and Policy Analysis. A Response to Warren Samuels, "The Pareto Principle: Another View".Jürgen Backhaus - 1981 - Analyse & Kritik 3 (2):237-246.
    Warren Samuels has suggested that the Pareto Principle, when being used in policy analysis, is limited, selective, and displays a conservative bias. In contrast to this view, in this note it is argued that the Pareto Principle is much less limited than was initially perceived or is generally believed to be the case, that it tends to emphasize inclusiveness instead of selectivity, and that it is more likely to have an innovative instead of a conservative bias.

  50. The Pareto Principle.Jürgen Backhaus - 1980 - Analyse & Kritik 2 (2):146-171.
    The purpose of the paper is a discussion of the meaning and relevance of the Pareto principle in economics. To begin with, the principle is briefly retraced in Pareto's own writings. Its contemporary meaning was, however, developed in the context of the "New Welfare Economics". While Pareto technically employed the principle in order to describe an equilibrium situation, Kaldor and Hicks developed it somewhat differently as a yardstick for economic policy formulation. Sometimes, the principle is also discussed as a decision (...)
