Abstract
Wilfred Beckerman's textbook entitled Economics as Applied Ethics. Value Judgements in Welfare Economics has been published by Palgrave MacMillan. The monograph is intended for students who are completing their studies of economics and are interested in connections between economics and ethics. In the Introduction Beckerman states: "[A]lthough ... the value judgements inherent in welfare economics are not prominent in economic research or education, students of the subject, or politicians, ought not to be left with the impression that economics is a value-free objective science."
