Defenders of Smith within CST tend to emphasize the material benefits that derive from Smithian institutions, such as economic growth, (...)

    The New Case for the Ethics of Business.Gregory Wolcott - 2015 - Journal of Business Ethics 132 (1):127-146.
    In this paper, I argue for the ethics of business based on the way that business activity may embody a vocation to partake in “the Good.” Following a Platonist framework for ethics and recent work on vocations by Robert M. Adams, I argue that understanding the ethics of vocations allows us to avoid the charges that business persons have to do something more for others—often couched in terms of social responsibility, sustainability, or consideration of stakeholders—in order to legitimize their careers (...)

    Restricting Choices: Decision Making, the Market Society, and the Forgotten Entrepreneur.Gregory Wolcott - 2019 - Journal of Business Ethics 156 (2):293-314.
    Basing their claims on findings in the behavioral sciences that illuminate cognitive deficiencies, scholars spanning multiple disciplines argue that certain features of free market capitalist societies threaten human wellbeing, especially insofar as such societies are marked by a proliferation of consumer choices and incessant demands on decision making. This paper thus attempts three things. First, it outlines the criticisms of the expansive freedoms found in free market societies, based on those findings, in order to provide a reliable overview of the (...)
