Wirtschaftsethik

 

Wirtschaftsethik (Knottenbauer, V2/Ü2, WS, social competency)

The course “Wirtschaftsethik” investigates the question of how the application of ethical principles might affect economic activities. Moral issues are of central importance for quality of life, environmental sustainability, and social justice in economies. On the one hand moral decisions are the responsibility of the individual economic actors, such as consumers, investors, employees, or entrepreneurs, on the other hand they are also related to political institutions that can promote moral behavior by means of regulation.
