Virtues and Economics

Virtues and Economics

Springer launches a new book series entitled „Virtues and Economics”. Series editors are Peter Rona, (Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford) and Laszlo Zsolnai.           

The series is dedicated to virtue ethics and economics. The goal is to help develop a virtue-based economic theory which connects virtues with the contents of economic activities of individuals, unincorporated and incorporated economic agents. The primary context is Catholic Social Teaching but other faith traditions (especially Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism) will also be explored for their construction of virtues in economic action. Special attention will be made to regulatory and policy issues in promoting economic justice.
