Ethics, Economics, and Politics: Principles of Public Policy

I. M. D. Little


Studies the three interfaces of ethics, economics, and politics. Any well‐considered view of the most desirable role for the state in various aspects of our lives implies some serious thinking about these subjects, and the way in which they interact. This can be done without formal academic training in any of them.

Keywords: collective welfare, contractarianism, democracy, individual welfare, public expenditure, public production, rights, social justice, the state, utilitarianism
