We often think of the virtues as moral dispositions or ethical values. In Catholic thought, the virtues have a more mundane function, however. They are practical, decision-making habits for uncertain environments. When we appreciate the practical nature of virtue, we can understand better the shortcomings of mainstream and behavioral economic models of decision making. Join for this lunchtime event as Prof. Andy Yuengert explores the interesection of economics and virtue.
