Ethics and Economics Resources week 2

The professional identity of the economist came up as an issue in the seminar discussion. Here are the full references to the books/papers I mentioned.

George DeMartino, The economist’s oath: on the need for and content of professional economic ethics (Oxford University Press, 2011).(A precis of his argument can be found in his earlier article: George DeMartino, “A Professional Ethics Code for Economists.,” Challenge (05775132) 48, no. 4 (July 2005): 88-104.)

Arjo Klamer and David C. Colander, The making of an economist (Westview Press, 1990). Discusses striking results of surveys of graduate economics students. (Revised edition: David Colander, The Making of an Economist, Redux (Princeton University Press, 2008).)
