Moral Markets site mission

Moral Markets aims to be a source of information and inspiration for business professionals, policy makers, students and researchers by providing a portal to quality blogs / news / events / online resources that help them critically reflect on free markets, ethics and well-being (and on the role of business, virtues, institutions and economics education). The site draws on research in economics, philosophy and other relevant disciplines, but also accepts quality contributions from non-researchers. In addition to publishing original content, the site points visitors to interesting content from around the web.


The website Moral Markets was created as part of the research project What Good Markets are Good for, but is explicitly not merely a channel to communicate its research results. The site mission – see above – is broader than that, and the Good Markets project is merely one contributor to the Moral Markets website.

Independence & Openness

Moral Markets is not connected to a specific political or philosophical tradition and does not try to promote a specific view on the topic. In fact, we deliberately aim to present a mix of – sometimes opposing – arguments and views.


Views expressed in news items / blog posts / event announcements are those of the contributing individual(s) / organization(s) and are not necessarily supported by the site’s editorial team, the Good Markets¬†research project or any of the individual researchers involved in the project.
