"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
