Part 3In an article entitle “Ethics and Economics” by Stephen Hicks explains that “ethical issues connect intimately with economic issues”. Hicks uses questions in a compare and contrast practice dealing with the studies such as capitalism, profits, and competition that have concepts that ethicists use such as good, admirable, and best. For example, Hicks states, “This connects economics to a second major issue in ethics: Is goodness or badness determined by real-world practical consequences or by some other means, such as revelations from God, faith in authorities or authoritative institutions, appeals to rational consistency, felt senses of empathy, or an innate conscience?” (Hicks, 2008). From this article, it seems as if Hicks is applying that many wealth-seeking activities are seen as both ethical and economic. Reference Bible Gateway. 2016. Deuteronomy & Matthew.
