Handbook of teaching ethics to economists, a plurality of perspectives, edited by Ioana Negru (reader in economics, Faculty of Economic Sciences, University "Lucian Blaga" Sibiu, Romania), Craig Duckworth (senior lecturer in governance, ethics and economics, LSBU Business School, London South Bank University, London) and Imko Meyenburg (senior lecturer in economics and international business, Anglia Ruskin University, UK) - (e-book)

"Drawing on the knowledge of highly experienced academics, this authoritative Handbook explains how ethics can inform the teaching of economics. It includes state-of-the-art moral theory alongside traditional approaches to emphasise why ethics should be an important consideration for economic practitioners. The Handbook of Teaching Ethics to Economists keenly demonstrates how economic analysis can reflect implicit moral judgements. Chapters include guidance on course design and lesson content, providing insight into important topics such as ecological and grassroots economics. They offer pedagogical advice alongside philosophical analyses, setting out teaching guidance and significant case-study profiles on key theories, such as Kantian and Aristotelian ethics. Importantly, they reflect on the potential of economics to cause harm and use ethics to mitigate this possibility. This expansive Handbook will be essential for academics preparing to teach courses relating to ethics and economics. Due to its detailed explanations of the societal role of economics, students of economics and finance will additionally find this Handbook to be incredibly useful"--, Provided by publisher
