|Title:||The Moral Economy of Saint Thomas Aquinas: Agent Sovereignty, Customary Law and Market Convention||Contributor(s):||Owen, John Robert (author)||Publication Date:||2007||DOI:||10.1080/10848770601080966||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1502||Abstract:||The ethical authority carried in the conventions of fairness and human well-being has been widely adopted under the idea of "moral economy", forming an eclectic and interdisciplinary debate. Significant, though external to this debate, is a corpus of medieval thought which exhibits a fundamental interest in legitimate market protocols, and the political rights and obligations of agents in relation to the common good of the community. This article asserts the imperative status of a customary basis for understanding not just the analytic version of moral economy but the legacy contained in what might be termed the "the moral economy of Aquinas".||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||The European Legacy, 12(1), p. 39-54||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1084-8770
