Munich Lecture in Business Ethics with Prof. Samuel Bowles
In this year’s Munich Lecture in Business Ethics Prof. Samuel Bowles will talk about “The Moral Economy: Why good incentives are no substitute for good citizens” at Technical University Munich (TUM). The talk takes place on November 9, 2017 at 6:30 pm at the Vorhoelzer Forum (TUM main campus, Room 5170).
Prof. Samuel Bowels is research professor at the Santa Fe Institute where he heads the behavioral science program. He taught economics at Harvard from 1965 to 1973 and since then at the University of Massachusetts and the University of Siena. His studies on cultural and genetic evolution have challenged the conventional economic assumption that people are motivated entirely by self-interest. Recent papers have also explored how organizations, communities and nations could be better governed in light of the fact that altruistic and ethical motives are common in most populations.
The Munich Lecture in Business Ethics is an annual lecture series since 2011 that discusses current topics relating to business ethics. It is jointly held by the Peter Löscher Chair of Business Ethics of Prof. Lütge, and the Chair of Economics – Public Economics and Industrial Organization of Prof. Robert K. von Weizsäcker. Both are chairs of the TUM School of Management.
