Abstract [en]

The article deals with two basic problems within ethics and economics. The first problem concerns the conception of a good human life within political economy and economic theory. What are the oblects to value in economic analysis? The second problem concerns the conception of equality and the relationship between happiness and equality. What goods should be the objects for an equal distribution and why should such an equal distribution be promoted?
