Ethics, Economics, and Feminism
1998 (English)Book (Other scientific)
This volume focuses on the contributions of feminist theory to a critical evaluation of neoclassical economics and the contributions of economic theory to ethical reflection. Julie Nelson argues that women and nature share a similar treatment in neoclassical economics. They are made invisible or pushed into the background. John Broome argues that formal techniques used in economics can contribute to ethical theory.
Five articles give outlines of studies on ethics and economics. Per Sundman makes a critical analysis of a neo-Aristotelian approach to the managerial role in business ethics. Gert Helgesson discusses ethical preconditions in economic theory. Malin Löfstedt deals with the neoclassical view of humans, Ann-Cathrin Jarl writes about the conceprions of equality in feminist economics, and Carl-Åke Elmersjö deals with economic analysis in health care.
