Additional resources for Economy and Morality: The Philosophy of the Welfare State

Example text

For example, under the economic institutions of capitalism, exchange in markets is based on the private ownership of resources. On the other hand, the provision of social services in a welfare state is based on the claim of social rights to specific goods and services. Unlike a socialist state, the welfare state operates not according to the stock of resources but according to the flow of goods and services. Furthermore, as mentioned above with regard to externalities, some qualifications for ownership are introduced to fill the gap between private and social interests.

In economics, concepts such as welfare or utility are generally used instead of the good to indicate the ultimate ends pursued by economic agents by means of goods. This convention conceals the process in which goods are related to the moral world through the concept of goodness. Good, welfare, and utility all mean the same thing: those things to be pursued as the ultimate ends. If the source of a value is an interest in general, under the proviso of certain restrictions, an interest in the acquisition and disposal of goods and services is the source of demand for goods and services in the economic world.

As morality generally regulates the normative aspect of social institutions, it is a fundamental constituent of the framework of economic activity. So how can the two worlds be integrated? To answer this question it is necessary to explore the nature of the good that builds the interface: that is, the plurality of the good in two senses. This can be claimed from a moral point of view despite the remarkable capacity for the universalization of economic values. Rather, the claim of the plurality of the good is a theoretical foundation of a moral constraint on the economy.
