What makes intervention legitimate?, Weimar, 2013

July 01, 2013

If one assumes well-behaved preferences and takes efficiency to be the norm, welfare economics makes clear normative claims. This symposium broadens the view by allowing for alternative definitions of preferences, by redefining the policy problem, by discussing alternative normative goals, and by investigating perceived legitimacy.

Contributions stem from economists, lawyers, psychologists and philosophers.
