Peter Ulrich is Full Professor of Economic and Business Ethics and Director of the Institute for Business Ethics at the University of St Gallen, Switzerland.


Review of the hardback: 'Peter Ulrich's book, Integrative Economic Ethics, is most timely and prescient. The field of economics has sometimes imagined itself as a science governed by pure rationality. Yet economics has to do with human relationships that create, sustain, or destroy markets. As such, economics is inherently normative. Ulrich's focus on economic ethics addresses this concept critically and directly. This book firmly closes the alleged gap between economics and ethics by questioning that separation in the literature and by presenting sustained arguments for the concept of economic ethics.'
