ECO 316 - Markets and Morality

Three Credits
Not Offered 2016-2017

Voluntary exchange through a market process enables individuals to coordinate the complicated but vital task of producing and distributing goods and services. Though market activities often generate socially beneficial outcomes, markets appear to lack a moral end or purpose. Using Papal Encyclicals, we will investigate how the Catholic Church has struggled with the morality of voluntary exchange through markets.
