Overview of "ARE ECONOMISTS BASICALLY IMMORAL?": AND OTHER ESSAYS ON ECONOMICS, ETHICS, AND RELIGION BY PAUL HEYNE

A well-trained theologian, a gifted and dedicated teacher of economics for over forty years, and the author of a highly regarded and widely used textbook, The Economic Way of Thinking, Paul Heyne influenced generations of students of economics. Many of the essays in this volume are published here for the first time. The editors, Geoffrey Brennan and A. M. C. Waterman, have divided Heyne’s essays thematically to cover three general areas: the ethical foundations of free markets, the connection between those ethical foundations and Christian thought, and the teaching of economics—both method and substance.

Heyne’s writings are unique in that he takes the critics of the free market order seriously and addresses their arguments directly, showing how they are defective in their understanding of economics and in their ethical and theological underpinnings. The engaging style of Heyne’s essays makes them accessible to students as well as to scholars. Even in discussions of topics well beyond the fundamental level, Heyne still succeeds in providing students with an appreciation of basic economic principles.

Paul Heyne (1931?2000) taught at Valparaiso University (1957?66), Southern Methodist University (1966?76), and the University of Washington (1976?2000)

Synopsis of "ARE ECONOMISTS BASICALLY IMMORAL?": AND OTHER ESSAYS ON ECONOMICS, ETHICS, AND RELIGION BY PAUL HEYNE

"Are Economists Basically Immoral?" and Other Essays on Economics, Ethics, and Religion is a collection of Heyne's essays focused on an issue that preoccupied him throughout his life and which concerns many free-market skeptics-namely, how to reconcile the apparent selfishness of a free-market economy with ethical behavior.
