Addressing Possible Objections

Addressing Possible Objections

(p.105) five Addressing Possible Objections
Law, Economics, and Morality



Oxford University Press

This chapter tackles a number of methodological and principled objections to the incorporation of deontological constraints into economic analysis. It discusses the claims that such incorporation would adversely affect the normative neutrality of economic analysis; that monetizing deontological constraints faces insurmountable obstacles; that it would lead to setting too low thresholds for constraints; and that it is incompatible with the expressivist role of the law. It concludes that most of these objections are unpersuasive, and none is conclusive.

Keywords:   incommensurability, monetization, role of law, commodification, normative neutrality, willingness to pay
