The ethics of banking conclusions from the financial crisis by Peter Koslowski( )
16 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book analyzes the systemic and the ethical mistakes that have led to the financial crisis of 2008. It explores the middle ground between the argument that financial managers cannot be expected to take responsibility for a systemic crisis and the argument that moral failure is the one and only origin of the crisis. The book investigates the role of speculation in the formation of the crisis. It distinguishes between productive speculation for hedging and for securing market liquidity on the one hand, and unproductive and even detrimental hyper-speculation, on the other. The book argues that hyper-speculation goes far beyond the degree of speculation that is necessary for the liquidity of financial markets in a developed economy, and has thus increased the risks of the financial system and will continue to do so. This book offers an ethics of banking and an ethical economy of the financial markets to counterbalance the financial industry{u2019}s purely economic approach

Democracy and the European Union ( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The European Union is a new subject for theories of legitimacy, posing fundamental questions to the established concepts and principles of democratic theory. General compliance and popular acceptance and respect for European law is at stake. The volume addresses the main challenges of the European Union to democratic theory. The legitimacy of such transnational institutions born by political integration has so far received some but scant attention. The mere existence of the Union proves that the sovereign state cannot remain the sole focus of normative reflection. Indeed, the very conception of sovereignty is at stake. The present volume combines political science and normative political theory to offer concepts, arguments and criteria that further these debates, addressing problems of principle

Ethics of capitalism ; and, Critique of sociobiology : two essays with a comment by James M. Buchanan by Peter Koslowski( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and German and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book has two subjects, first the ethical theory of the economic order, and secondly the critique of sociobiology and its theory of evolution. The first part, the ethics of capitalism, analyzes the rise of capitalism and the business ethics and moral theory of a capitalist economic order in a perspective from philosophy and economics. The second part, a critique of sociobiology, gives a philosophical assessment of sociobiology's contribution to the theory of the economy and society and of its impact for metaphysics and a general world view. James M. Buchanan, Nobel prize winner in economics, discusses the first part of the book in his comment "The Morality of Capitalism"
Ethics in economics, business, and economic policy by Peter Koslowski( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents an integration of the analysis of symbo- lic, ethical, and cultural meaning into the theory of econo- mic action. It demontrates that the scope of economics is widened by the inclusion of the cultural and ethical determinants of economic action and by bringing the ethical and cultural factors back into economics and management science. The book's contribution to business ethics and economic ethics lies in its distinctly continental European background which is often overlooked in current discussions of economic theory. The papers in this volume point to a mutual interpenetration of economics and ethics in a new synthesis of "ethical economy"

8 editions published in 1991 in German and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Business ethics in East Central Europe by Peter Koslowski( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The transformation process from the planned to the market economy in the East Central European countries is a laboratory of applying economic theory and business ethics to an enormous historical transition in the economic and political system. Authors from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia analyse the economic, philosophical and political problems of the transition process. They discuss the economic and legal questions of the privatization of socialized property, examine critically whether pure Liberalism has been and is able to cope with the transition problems, and investigate the role and impact of business ethics in the transition process. This volume contributes to the theory of the role of business ethics in periods of institutional change
Sociobiology and bioeconomics : the theory of evolution in biological and economic theory by Peter Koslowski( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of evolution and Neo-Darwinian biological theory extend their analysis in sociobiology from the life sciences and the animal societies to human societies. Sociobiology as a unifying theory of the social interaction within and between species has led to an integration of economic analysis into biology. The economy of nature has become the subject of bioeconomics which in turn transferred biological analysis to the human economy. Evolution, competition, selection, and cooperation are phenomena common to the economy of nature and human economy. The inclusion of economic and cultural theory in evolution theory raises the question whether the Neo-Darwinian Synthesis with its exclusive concern with somatic heredity is able to incorporate developmental systems of the human economy and of cultural heredity. A new synthesis of the natural and the social sciences is in the making
Restructuring the welfare state : theory and reform of social policy by Peter Koslowski( Book )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The welfare state has been developed first and in its largest extent in North-Western Europe, in Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Sweden. It is also in these countries where the crisis and financial problems of the welfare state are felt first. The need for restructuring the welfare state is a challenge of a supra-national, European and international scale. The book analyses the different welfare states in Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Sweden with outlooks to Eastern Europe and Japan and examines the proposals for reforming and restructuring the welfare state in Europe. The book offers a unique combination of empirical and philosophical-ethical analysis of the welfare state
Principles of ethical economy by Peter Koslowski( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One principle of ethical economy is the classical principle of double effect that is used for a theory of managerial and general decision-making. Unintended side-effects (externalities) are a central problem of decisions of large impact. Management decision making must exploit the potential for positive side-effects and control the negative side-effects of managerial decisions. The theory of ethical economy analyses the principles of just price and fair pricing and the relevance of the theory of just price for the pricing behaviour of the modern firm."

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The internet has set off a technological revolution that has produced thorough changes in all industries. The volume at hand gives an analysis of the internet revolution. It covers questions reaching from the highly controversial thesis of the end of property rights in the internet caused by the non-rivalry of the "consumption" of information to questions regarding the repercussions of the internet on our understanding of the human person. Technological changes like the introduction of the electronic economy raise the question of how to manage its ethical problems and dilemmas. Contributions from applied ethics and business ethics analyse the ethical problems and the business ethics of the electronic economy in the fields of production, labour, consumption, and in handling trust and the abuse of trust in the electronic business relationships. The reader is provided with a comprehensive analysis of the electronic economy and its technological, social, and ethical problems
The social market economy : theory and ethics of the economic order by Peter Koslowski( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The social market economy forms a fundamental theory of the market economy and an integrated economic and ethical theory of the economic order in which the political and societal conditions for the working of the market are included in the theory of the market economy. The social market economy is presented as a universal theory of the decisions to be made about the economic order in all cultures and is analysed in its basic theoretical foundations and in its application to the transition process from the planned to the market economy, particulary in the privatisation of socialised property in Russia and former East Germany. Leading German and Russian experts in the field as well as four classical texts present a systematic analysis of the social market economy from the point of view of economics, law, and ethics
