Abstract [en]

This article is an introduction to an issue on the theme "Economics, Justice, and Welfare", with contributions from Elizabeth Anderson, Sven Ove Hansson, Julie Nelson, Nigel Dower and Frans Brom. It contains a selection of the papers presented at the 2003 Annual Conference of the Societas Ethica in Sigtuna, Sweden. The introduction deals with the theme of this conference, which was organised by the guest-editor of the issue, Carl-Henric Grenholm.

The thesis in the introduction is that there are ethical assumptions withion mainstream economic theory. Neoclassical economics is often involved in a study of individual markets and a study of individual decisions at the economic market. In its models of consumer choice and the behavious of producers neoclassical economics assumes that we are rational individuals, seeking to promote our own preference satisfaction. These models often presuppose particular ideas on what is good or valuable, particular distributional values, and particular norms of equality.
