Economics and ethics? by Peter Groenewegen( )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can modern economics adequately embrace ethical issues or does its theoretical apparatus prohibit such a relationship? In December 1994, social scientists from the fields of economics, philosophy, political science and anthropology attended a workshop to discuss the current state of the economics-ethics nexus by way of examining both past and contemporary practice. The proceedings of this conference presented a wide variety of attitudes and includes an examination of economics and ethics from an economist and a philosopher's perspective, in order to assess the contemporary implications of the relationship, and in the late nineteenth century against the background of a long utilitarian tradition. This is a set of stimulating reflections by practitioners - including Chin Liew Ten, Bob Coats and Geoffrey Brennan - on the tricky associations between economics and ethics

The economists covered include Keynes, Marshall, Petty and Jevons, as well as less familiar theorists such as Galiani and Turgot."--Jacket
A soaring eagle : Alfred Marshall, 1842-1924 by Peter Groenewegen( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theorist, practitioner, educator and arguably the father of professional economics, Alfred Marshall's life and career have long required a full scale biography to put his work into context and reveal the extent of his influence." "Peter Groenewegen's outstanding new book places the major features of Marshall's life and work within the rich institutional setting of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Britain. This biography sheds new light on Marshall's decision to study economics - after dropping mathematics, philosophy and psychology in turn - and the background to his important books, including the Principles of Economics, as well as his government advice over three decades. More than just the life of a major economist, it also deals with economics and mathematics education at Cambridge, contemporary controversies over socialism, imperialism, free trade, eugenics, religious belief, social welfare and the women's movement." "As the first biography of Alfred Marshall, A Soaring Eagle contributes to the history of economics, the social sciences and education while also offering a series of insights into Victorian and Edwardian society."--Jacket

Feminism and political economy in Victorian England( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction briefly and selectively reviews the treatment of feminism and women in political economy. This is followed by essays on the political economy of J.S. Mill, Henry Fawcett and Henry Sidgwick, three supporters of the women's movement whose economics continued to adopt an essentially male perspective. The place of women in Jevons's political economy is discussed with special reference to his involvement in a debate over working wives and infant mortality. Alfred Marshall's views on the sexual division of labour are assessed from the perspective of efficiency, development, family and race. Later papers focus on the changing position of the Webbs on women's rights and the political economy of women in the work of Clara Collet
