Recommended by EJMR as I looked for good philosophy readings Sen in this essay criticizes the implicit assumptions grounding the First Welfare Theorem and other assumptions of welfare economics Sen argues that ethics and economics have gotten too disconnected to the detriment of both Economics had its start in two traditions an Aristotelian stew in which concepts which we would today call ethics, politics, and economics were all mixed up and one in which economics is viewed as separate and instr [...]
Sen s clear and concise book is adapted from his 1986 university lectures They offer a critique of some of the utilitarian, rationalistic and egoistic assumptions underlying welfare economics I especially enjoyed his analytical distinctions in the realm of welfare and utility Sen s insights, in lecture form, are stripped of excessive although obviously useful math, but not of their fire power.
Inter alia tra l altro per nulla facile, ma cogliendone anche un 10% comunque illuminantePag 8 E difficile credere che le persone reali di cui si ritiene debba interessarsi l economia non si pongano la domanda socratica come bisogna vivere ch il motivo centrale dell etica secondo Bernard Williams Pag 9 L economia ha 2 origini una legata all etica a Aristotele e alla sua Etica Nicomadea Pag 10 Per Aristotele non c possibilit di dissociare lo studio dell economia dall etica e dalla filosofia polit [...]
Based on three lectures given at Berkeley in 1986, this short book first argues for the reintroduction of ethics into the field of economics Economics as a discipline has wandered into theoretical abstractions and mathematical models divorced from the daily lives of real people Sen, not only a Nobel Prize winning economist 1998 but also a first rate moral philosopher, points out the beginnings of the economics as a discipline emerged from the moral philosophies of Hume, Adam Smith, the French ph [...]
While the book raises problems with utilitarian welfare economics than it solves, it is a perfect example of sheer academic wit and a supremely logical mind.

This is one heavy heavy book Took me an awful long time to read and even to understand and relate, and even then I have to admit I probably understood only half of the book.It actually is mind boggling.But yeah, his concept of seeing economics than just in monetary terms, and inter interplay and its dynamics with ethics, morals and values is fascinating Albeit a little confusing at times.
Un libro muy interesante Un economista que se atreve a filosofar sobre justicia, merece todos mis respetos y m s cuando lo hace con la rigurosidad necesaria No por nada este Premio Nobel de Econom a ha pasado a ser un cl sico para los estudiosos de la econom a normativa El libro es sesudo y hay partes dif ciles de entender a la primera pero merece la pena el intento.
I ve had to read the book several times to start grasping the meaning of the ideas exposed within There are still times that this book will need to be re read, but I think the author demonstrates a clear and witty insight into the science of economics.
While it is pretty dense reading, Sen puts forth a lot of ideas to change the focus of current economics I was most interested in his expansive and persuasive argument that people are than self interested beings, and economic analysis as such is limiting.
A bit too technical for me, but the ideas are great.
