Self-interest, Market and Morality - Look into History
Phenomena of self-interest, market and morality have been undoubtedly ones of the most discussed problems among economists, philosophers, sociologists and others during the last two centuries. The author therefore offers a brief historical survey, in which he presents the most influential ideas pronounced by distinguished thinkers of the past and present time. He shows that two trends of economic thinking have been established; one that supports and another that rejects the proposition: "morality is the constituent part of behaviour of economic agents" and accentuates great practical significance of the solution of this problem.
