Are profits morally justifiable? While neoclassical economists have traditionally endorsed the pursuit of profits, many moral philosophers have challenged profit making on a variety of ethical grounds. Through the lenses of economics, philosophy, and law, these six essays explore the morality of profits from libertarian, utilitarian, and more general consequentialist perspectives. Presenting arguments for and against the morality of profit making, the contributors examine the nature of profits and the ethical theories that can support them. Two essays address how profits are made: one explores entrepreneurship as a legitimate source of profit, while another argues that recent advances in welfare economics weaken the case for the morality of profits. The other chapters focus on ethical theory, covering the right to profits from economic rent; the morality of how profits are used - those directed toward library or university endowments, for example, are considered morally acceptable - and whether or not profits are deserved.
From the Publisher:
Five of the six papers were presented in earlier versions at a December 1990 symposium in Montreal sponsored by the Liberty Fund of Indianapolis. Scholars of economics, philosophy, and law steer their way between the endorsement of the pursuit for profit by neoclassical economists and challenges to profit making by many moral philosophers. They reach no overall conclusion. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
