Ética personal y profesional: la Economía y los economistas


Author Info

  • Máximo Vega-Centeno B.


This paper addresses an ongoing debate on significant concepts about morality in public and even private life, and their relationships with economist. It entails a concern of several scholars (more permanent for some of them and more circumstantial for others), and attempts to get a precise view of the conditions for a professional performance that goes according to an ethical commitment and a concern for the people. Finally, it describes some specific problems that appear in the professional performance due to the importance of the discipline within ongoing social problems and expectations, and due to the permanent risk of validating ethical faults because of a lack of adequate sanctioning.
