The Moral Foundation of Economic Behavior

Monday, December 9, 2013 @ 9:30 AM-11:00 AM

Exploring Issues in Economics Series

Featured Speaker: David Rose, Ph.D., Professor of Economics, University of Missouri – St. Louis

Economist and author of The Moral Foundation of Economic Behavior, Dr. David Rose, explains why moral beliefs play an important role in the development and operation of free market societies. For a society to enjoy general prosperity, a climate of trust is necessary to support many of the free market institutions we take for granted in countries like the U.S. Dr. Rose explains why such trust cannot be derived from our genetic hardwiring or from institutions and can only come from culturally transmitted moral beliefs that possess specific characteristics.
