Ethics and Economics

Image for Ethics and Economics

Overview

The global financial crisis and its impacts have raised important questions about the role that ethics in economic thinking and the responsibilities that a market capitalist system has in relation to wider social and political concerns.  In particular the programme is examining the duty of care in financial institutions, how the culture and value systems of financial institutions changed in the years leading up to the crisis, and what practically might be done to rebuild trust and encourage stronger and more ethically based standards of behavior in financial and economic activity.
