Publisher's Description

We often struggle to answer the question: What is the right thing to do here?

Good Intentions suggests that it is possible to do good in economic matters if we begin with the right assumptions (and begins to ask the right questions):

  •  Is greed ever good?
  •  How can we give poor kids a million bucks?
  •  How did Ben and Jerry get so rich?
  •  Is capitalism ruining the environment?
  •  Do immigrants take American jobs?

Our actions can produce outcomes that reflect what we value.
