EconomEtica organizes the 4th National Conference: Second Colloquium

“Teaching ethics in an age of crisis”


November 30, 2009,  9.00
Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca
Sala del Consiglio Edificio U7 - Quarto Piano
via Bicocca degli Arcimboldi, 8

The objective of this Second Colloquium is to discuss whether or not there actually exists ethical responsibility in economic professions in the face of the crisis and what would be the role of teaching ethics of economics and business in the economic and management professions.

The first session will pose the question of whether there is responsibility in the profession of economists, through the ways they develop and apply their own theories and competences and in the lacking prevention of the global economic-financial crisis. And therefore, whether or not there exists ethical responsibility and a research program of economists to reorient themselves in the future.

The second session will examine the international and Italian experience of inserting economics and business ethics in the formational of economists and managers. The session will pose the question as to why it was not possible (and how may it be possible in the future) to favor the emergence of organizations and responsible behaviors, and to avoid repeating the greedy, imprudent and unconscious conduct of individuals and organizations.

The final round table will include professors and training experts who will reflect on the necessity and practical model of including ethics of economics and business within university curriculum and management formation.
