University Forum

Markets and Morals

-

The University Forum will provide food for thought for reassessing the role of the markets and their moral limits in our everyday lives. The lectures will in particular touch on questions concerning the role, the development and the erosion of morals in the markets. A wide range of markets - ranging from markets in medicine to traditional financial markets - and moral aspects relating to these markets will be addressed in the context of related scientific fields. We will also focus on the role of the markets in democratic societies, shedding light on the relevant norms for marketing social activities and a fair access to goods.
