Ethics applied to Economics

This is the main board for discussing philosophy - formal, informal and in between.

Ethics applied to Economics

Postby thinkdr » Sat Nov 16, 2019 11:04 pm

I will state, simply, what I learned from a wise Philosopher named Robert S. Hartman.

Let us here apply Ethics to the concept "economic system."

A good economic system creates wealth.
A bad economic system gives rise to poverty and permits extreme and abject poverty to exist.

As I explained earlier, when discussing the Hierarchy of Value (the HOV) formula, moral value has primacy over economic value.
I > E and I > S.

Hence the lack of morality in what is referred to as 'the free-enterprise system' leads to impoverishment.

That is one more reason why we need Ethics: so that the economic system under which we live can create more wealth, and that all citizens can share in enjoying some of it.


Do we need now to put into effect the UBI - which stands for "Universal Basic Income." Or some well-thought out form of it? Can you suggest a better reform? It would at least have to be one that will put some resources in the hands of the needy, so that they can possibly participate constructively in creating even more wealth for all of us to share.


Do we need to engage in a campaign to back the U.S. Dollar with some standard? Bucky Fuller suggested that the standard be: (global) productivity per man/hour. Can this index today be measured? Are economists or statisticians capable of this?


Your ideas??

Does the system include the hardcore fact of too many bodies living in one place? Does it include the psychology of why people stay in massive cities living in poverty rather than migrate to less populated areas?

Greetings, Kriswest

Nice to hear from you!

No,the system does not include those concepts. Should it?

If the people are "living in poverty" as you say they are, how can they afford to migrate and to settle in a new area? As you know, it takes money to travel and to get set up in a new location -- although I grant there have been rare exceptions to this.

So it may be the psychology of hopelessness that gets them to stay where they currently are.

The system does talk about a support network and how helpful that can be.
Having many people in one place may function as a support network IF these people know their Ethics, and are thus ready and willing to help one another; for they appreciate the value of cooperation.

One way people may learn Ethics is via education and/or coaching. Another way is by self-study, perhaps by reading up on one of the selections in the References below.



What do you think with regard to the thesis?

I refer to the thesis that a good economic system would continuously create more wealth, so that as a result of the thoughtful way it is structured all citizens would share in enjoying some of it.
With a UBI plan, and a productive economy, each year (due to technological innovstion) the pot would be bigger, and thus there would be more for each individual to share.
Many countries already have some sort of UBI as one could learn by a quick use of a search engine such as Google or Bing. We could learn from those places....

Hello for some reason my lengthy reply is not being allowed. I am going to see if I can post portions. It is probably due to me living in the boonies and poor reception or crap like that

Part one:
Good to be talking to you!
Been thinking about your reply. I think using poverty as a reason to not migrate to a better area is an error. People without money have migrated throughout the centuries. It is a desperation that drives migration. So that brings the question,, Is there real desperation?

Part two:
What makes a people desperate? Well, lack of food, water, freedom and housing are the basics. Religion and politics are the two that reach a community not an individual. Can we say that those who live in poverty in the USA lack a drive other than money? We know that you can pack essentials and hike to another location. We know you can move your kids with minimal.

Part 3

Right now it takes zero money and zero legal to register your kids as home schooled. So an impoverished family can register their kids as home schooled and legally walk across the country. Etc etc. there are ways to migrate that do not cost that much. So why no migration? Comfort. Sound bogus?? It is not. Essentials are met more often than not. Luxuries are the one thing that is not met.

Impoverished in this country get more free medical than in many countries especially for children. And medical is a big issue.
What you suggest can cause more social issues than now exist. Humans are animals that are no different than other herd/pack animals. We only have sentience as our difference. Our instincts lead us to congregate. Pull up satellite photos of the USA at night. Think about it .
There is more that can be discussed, most definitely.

Yes. I agree with what you say here. It is also true that desperation has caused impoverished people to migrate.

What is your opinion regarding the concept, the proposal, that a good economic system - structured to encourage creativity and Ethical Technology - would continuously create more wealth, so that as a result of the thoughtful way it is structured all citizens would share in enjoying some of it.

As to what is meant by "Ethical Technology," see the literature below:

I don’t get signatures on this little phone it is set for on in the settings but, apparently this phone or program for phone won’t allow it or I am utterly ignorant of this thing, that last is the most probable.

Readers may find to be of interest the article found when you Google:
medium - introducing the UBI Center

There a brief history of the Universal Basic Income concept is presented, and news of a data-driven open-source site designed to test various UBI plans.

Also see this link in Wikipedia on the topic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_income
or this link - more-specifically on UBI:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubi

Or, you may prefer this clearly-written account of how the UBI has been implemented around the world, and the success it has had:

UBI has only been implemented on a trial basis in a couple of countries and there are no clear public reports as to how the ventures fared.

Sounds like another chapter in the How to Destroy a Nation manual. The first chapter is on eliminating occupation (jobs), the easiest way to destroy a nation.

Free healthcare, free food, free education, free housing, and now free money as well. Why not. Of course like gold and jewelry, if everyone has it, it is worthless.

People rush in. Jobs rush out. Nation goes bankrupt. Poverty explodes. Socialists bathe in domination.

I suspect that UBO, Universal Basic Occupation, would be a better tactic. Give a job to everyone. It shouldn't take a genius to figure out where that leads. Just ask Stalin.

Papa Stalin did the best he could, pal. You ever been to Russia? It's a big ass frozen field with like three factories. It'd take at least a hunerd years to get that place up and running.

If you took that same revolution and made it happen now, instead, the chances of success would be astronomically higher.

Looked at these, then looked at the amount of people that the government knows about in the USA, then looked at National debt and how much it would take from each of us to pay this debt off.
Strike one in my opinion for UBI.
Humans are corruptible. Humans take advantage of free things, they lie, cheat and connive. Look at the abuses in food stamps and welfare
Strike 2
Our government is f***ed up right now. We have crappy con artists in Congress and Senate in both parties. Both parties think that they should be the only political parties.
Strike 3

I can’t get behind UBI for those reasons and probably others that I have not yet thought of. Sorry my friend.

That is why some economists rationally argue that the national debt should not totally ever be paid down. it is partly owed to Americans: to those who have purchased government debt instruments [T-notes, T-bills] as a security measure.

In the initial post of this thread, I wrote: “Do we need now to put into effect the UBI - which stands for "Universal Basic Income." Or some well-thought out form of it

On the web I found this analysis of what is called “The Freedom Dividend.” It is a proposal for a well-thought-out form of UBI. The analysis explains how the plan would be funded, how much it would cost, what would result from it, and other practical implications.

Here is a safe-to-open link to it: https://freedom-dividend.com/growth/ -- or, if interested, one could look it up by entering freedom dividend in a search box at a search-tool site. Read this argument for the plan: https://www.yang2020.com/policies/the-freedom-dividend/

:arrow:Then see these details as to how exactly it would be paid for – without adding to thee national debt: https://freedom-dividend.com/

A critical review of the proposal is found here: https://taxfoundation.org/andrew-yang-v ... ic-income/ Unfortunately the model used to calculate the costs makes some unwarranted assumptions, such as that there will, as a result, be a decrease in economic activity.
Actually, the opposite is likely to occur - due to technological innovation encouraged by the plan. The recent winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics demonstrated research that showed that people who receive a grant do not do not cease working; the labor force does not shrink. The evidence bears this out.

Some objective facts about UBI plans are available at this site: https://medium.com/ubicenter/introducin ... a8011bfc39

Does anyone else have a view on this topic? Let’s hear it!
Or, would the resulting economic growth make it all worth-while? What are your opinions on the subject?

Found an interesting discussion here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=194787&p=2724243&hilit43

Can anyone update us on some positive developments made in the last five years in progress in the direction of a needs-based economy?

If you know of any, please respond.

I'd like to hear from you!

ETHICS AND ECONOMICS

Is everyone who may be interested in the topics of Ethics, democracy, and economics aware of this fascinating site informing us about the concept of Democracy in the workplace, rather than the more-common hierarchical structure?
Check out this link: https://institute.coop/publications

What do you think about the fact that these cooperatives actually exist and are practical functioning entities?

When Ethics is applied to Economics we learn that there are alternative ways of organizing a business - within the capitalist system - where workers have a say in the setting of their pension size, their pay, the projects they want to work on; etc How about that:!: :!: 8)

As a result of some research here for you is another link about the cooperative movement existing within the current private enterprise system:
