Dundee Discussion Papers in Economics 288: Representations and the corruption of goods

Research output: Working paperDiscussion paper

Abstract

Critiques of Economics by the philosophers Michael Sandel and Ruth Grant reveal a substantive issue within economic theorising, that of attitude change, leading to the socalled “corruption of goods”. It is argued that current models within economics cannot sensibly handle attitude change in the dimensions discussed by Sandel and Grant. Instead it can be modelled using multirepresentational games- games that allow interpretations of situations by players to change within the game. Although this may result in inconsistency within games, it is demonstrated how this can be resolved and how useful they are in
analysing the corruption of goods.
