On Ethics and Economics
In this elegant critique, Amartya Sen argues that welfare economics can be enriched by paying more explicit attention to ethics, and that modern ethical studies can also benefit from a closer contact with economies. He argues further that even predictive and descriptive economics can be helped by making more room for welfare-economic considerations in the explanation of behaviour.

Commodities and Capabilities

release date: Jun 17, 1999
Commodities and Capabilities
Commodities and Capabilities presents a set of inter-related theses concerning the foundations of welfare economics, and in particular about the assessment of personal well-being and advantage. The argument presented focuses on the capability to function, i.e. what a person can do or can be, questioning in the process the more standard emphasis on opulence or on utility. In fact, a person's motivation behind choice is treated here as a parametric variable which may or may not coincide with the pursuit of self-interest. Given the large number of practical problems arising from the roles and limitations of different concepts of interest and the judgement of advantage and well-being, this scholarly investigation is both of theoretical interest and practical import.

Mismeasuring Our Lives

Mismeasuring Our Lives
In February of 2008, amid the looming global financial crisis, President Nicolas Sarkozy of France asked Nobel Prize-winning economists Joseph Stiglitz and Amartya Sen, along with the distinguished French economist Jean Paul Fitoussi, to establish a commission of leading economists to study whether Gross Domestic Product (GDP)--the most widely used measure of economic activity--is a reliable indicator of economic and social progress. The Commission was given the further task of laying out an agenda for developing better measures. "Mismeasuring Our Lives" is the result of this major intellectual effort, one with pressing relevance for anyone engaged in assessing how and whether our economy is serving the needs of our society. The authors offer a sweeping assessment of the limits of GDP as a measurement of the well-being of societies--considering, for example, how GDP overlooks economic inequality (with the result that most people can be worse off even though average income is increasing); and does not factor environmental impacts into economic decisions. In place of GDP, "Mismeasuring Our Lives" introduces a bold new array of concepts, from sustainable measures of economic welfare, to measures of savings and wealth, to a "green GDP." At a time when policymakers worldwide are grappling with unprecedented global financial and environmental issues, here is an essential guide to measuring the things that matter.

Identity & Violence

release date: Jan 01, 2006
Identity & Violence
The World May Be More Riven By Murderous Violence Than Ever Before, Yet Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen Argues In This Sweeping Philosophical Work That Its Brutalities Are Driven As Much By Confusion As By Inescapable Hatred. Sen Argues In His New Book That Conflict And Violence Are Sustained Today, No Less Than The Past, By The Illusion Of A Unique Identity. Indeed, The World Is Increasingly Taken To Be Divided Between Religions (Or 'Cultures' Or 'Civilizations'), Ignoring The Relevance Of Other Ways In Which People See Themselves Through Class, Gender, Profession, Language, Literature, Science, Music, Morals Or Politics, And Denying The Real Possibilities Of Reasoned Choices. In Identity And Violence&Nbsp;He Overturns Such Stereotypes As The 'The Monolithic Middle East' Or 'The Western Mind'. Through His Penetrating Investigation Of Such Subjects As Multiculturalism, Fundamentalism, Terrorism And Globalization, He Brings Out The Need For A Clear-Headed Understanding Of Human Freedom And A Constructive Public Voice In Global Civil Society. The World, Sen Shows, Can Be Made To Move Towards Peace As Firmly As It Has Recently Spiralled Towards War.
