LIONEL ROBBINS LECTURES Economics and the Cultivation of Virtue: The Hard Problem of Inter-Group Morality

Jeffrey Sachs (Columbia University)

LIONEL ROBBINS LECTURES Economics and the Cultivation of Virtue: Economics and the New Moral Sciences

Jeffrey Sachs (Columbia University)

During the past half century, a new moral science has emerged through the integration of research findings in several fields, including: Evolutionary Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Game Theory, Philosophy, Economics, Politics, and History. The findings of the new moral science require a reformulation of the aims and methods of economics. A key lesson is the need to place moral thinking and the cultivation of virtue back at the center of economic design and policy.
