Marshall on Progress and People's Welfare
The paper focuses on Marshall’s ideas of the economic and socio-ethical progress, of the development of man’s higher faculties, and of people’s welfare and improvement of their quality of life. The studies on economic and social progress with prospects for the elimination of human poverty and the higher development of human faculties, were ‘the high theme’ and the crucial ideas of his whole economics writings of Marshall. For him ‘the solution of economic problems was not an application of the hedonistic calculus, but a prior condition of the exercise of man’s higher faculties’. The paper stresses a nonutilitarian perspective. The first section examines the man’s economic conditions and human character, work and life, economic and ethical progress. Then the second section discusses about the ideas moralizing capitalism and citizenship, which is followed by the section on education and strength of the people; and supported by the discussions on the cumulative effects of people’s wages in the final section.
