Towards a Caring Economy

In Maurice Hamington & Maureen Sander-Staudt (eds.), Applying Care Ethics to Business. Springer (2011)
The aim of this paper is to show that a business ethic based on the ethics of care is superior to traditional business ethics. It shall be argued that neo-liberalism is inconsistent with the ethics of care since it either excludes caring institutions or treats them as preferences to be satisfied as the ‘free’ market sees fit. Unlike traditional business ethics, a business ethic based on the ethics of care can play an important role in challenging the neo-liberal paradigm. Many business issues that are treated as peripheral by traditional business ethics can thus take central stage in a business ethic based on the ethics of care.
