Abstract

We identify three points of intersection between economics and ethics: the ethics of economics, ethics in economics and ethics out of economics. These points of intersection reveal three types of conversation between economists and moral philosophers that have produced, and may continue to produce, fruitful exchange between the disciplines.

Keywords: benevolence, business ethics, contractualism, deontology, exploitation, globalization, Immanuel Kant, libertarianism, moral judgments, natural law, preferences, prioritarianism, professional ethics, John Rawls, Adam Smith, utilitarianism, virtue ethics
