General information

Modern capitalist market economy is an extremely powerful instrument to create wealth and
to satisfy human demands – and to exploit, alienate and destroy the very societies it is
supposed to serve. How can it be made moral?

As a major learning outcome, participants develop ethical frames of reference which allow
them to identify and tackle ethical dilemmas posed by today’s economy. Particularly, they will
learn do adopt strategies that avoid moral hazards and self-harming or self-defeating
behavior. Thus, they will be able to act ethically conscious in real life situations.

Below the line, participants will learn to analyze, interpret and transform economic behavior –
first and foremost their own!
