ECON 412 Economics and Ethics

3 semester hours

Economics and Ethics examines the roles and effects of ethics on economic analysis, behavior, and institutions. These issues arise, for example, in matters of charity, labor markets, and taxation. This course treats both descriptive and prescriptive theories as well as evidence on ethics from behavioral and experimental economics. It covers standard philosophical theories and connects them to empirical evidence and real world decision-making.

Prerequisite: ECON 310 . Recommended: ECON 410  or concurrent enrollment.
