The Ethics of Competition – Prof. Dr. Christoph Lütge / Renovación
05. March 2016
Many reject the very idea of competition with arguments based in ethics. They denounce it, and call instead for moderation and turn against many economical systems, upholding the idea that competition ruins morality. Rejecting this worldview is Christoph Lütge, currently holder of the Peter Löscher Endowed Chairmanship for economic ethics at TU München. Lütge upholds that increased competition can serve an ethnical purpose in the long run, and justifies his views systematically and with historical evidence. His thesis takes examples from ecology, education, public health and pleas for more free enterprise in all aspects of the community.
