About the Authors
  • Integrative Economic Ethics is a highly original work that progresses through a series of rational and philosophical arguments to address foundational issues concerning the relationship between ethics and the market economy. Rather than accepting market competition as a driver of ethical behaviour, the author shows that modern economies need to develop ethical principles that guide market competition, thus moving business ethics into the realms of political theory and civic rationality. This book was in its fourth edition in the original German in 2008, this English translation of Peter Ulrich's development of a fresh integrative approach to economic ethics will be of interest to all scholars and advanced students of business ethics, economics, and social and political philosophy.

    • Offers a highly original and integrative approach to business ethics and economics
    • Challenges the reader to think seriously about our assumptions concerning the relationships between ethics and economics
    • Addresses some of the most pressing ethical and political problems faced within modern economies
