MEDIA REVIEWS

"Within its chosen frame of reference the authors have made a substantial contribution." - Economic & Political Weekly

"Dutt and Wilber provide a compact yet comprehensive introduction to economics and ethics that thoroughly engages neoclassical economics, distinguishes different approaches to ethics, and discusses such fundamental issues as justice and equality. This is an excellent book, and is highly recommended for teaching and as a resource for scholars." - John B. Davis, Marquette University and University of Amsterdam

''This is a good and helpful introduction to the normative dimensions of economic theory and policy.'' - Albino Barrera, Providence College

'Wilber and Dutt bring a wealth of knowledge and humanity to the task of revitalizing the art of economics. This book provides a nuanced and timely account of the importance of ethics to our understanding of economics and public policies. The reader is in thoughtful and trustworthy hands.' - Jonathan B. Wight, Professor of Economics at the University of Richmond
