Should everyone get an unconditional basic income? Can wages be just? Is inheritance morally permissible? How should externalities such as environmental pollution be regulated? Questions of ethics and economics are systematically at the forefront of contemporary academic and public debates. Although many of these questions are not new, they are of renewed and pressing interest following increased awareness of the negative repercussions of growing wealth inequality, climate change, and globalization. The purpose of this summer school is to analyze these questions from the perspective of moral and political philosophy. We will, firstly, discuss how some of the main approaches in moral and political philosophy can be used to analyze key economic institutions such as the market, the firm, and the tax system. We will, secondly, reflect on how economists, legal scholars, political scientists, and philosophers can fruitfully work together on topics in the field of ethics and economics.

Confirmed speakers
Bea Cantillon (Antwerp University)
Rutger Claassen (Utrecht University)
Wim Dubbink (Tilburg University)
Stefan Gosepath (FU Berlin)
Louise Haagh (University of York)
Joseph Heath (University of Toronto)
Lisa Herzog (Bavarian School of Public Policy)
Sven Nyholm (Eindhoven University of Technology)
Martin O'Neill (University of York)
Ruth Yeoman (Oxford University)
