Kenneth Boulding as a Moral Scientist
Kenneth Bouldingâ€™s AEA presidential address argued that economics is a moral science. His view derived from his general systems theory thinking, his three systems view of human society, and his early contributions to evolutionary economics. Bouldingâ€™s argument that economics could not be value-free should be distinguished from other well-known views of economics as a moral science, such as Gunnar Myrdalâ€™s. This paper discusses the development and nature of Bouldingâ€™s thinking about economics as a moral science in the larger context of his thinking.
