Abstract

I would like to thank David Colander, John Cullis, Aaron Levine, for their thoughtful and thought provoking comments on my paper, “The ethical economy and competitive markets: reconciling, altruistic, moralistic and ethical behaviour with the rational economic agent and competitive markets”. I will respond to the critics in alphabetical order thereby betraying no preference, apart from a lexicographic one, to clarify and elaborate upon some key points made in my contribution.

Keywords: Response, Ethics, Altruism, Moral behaviour, Competitive markets
