It’s All Economics Unless It Isn’t?| Links I Like

In todays Links I Like  post,  Micheal Watson proposes things that lay outside of Economics. Great interview by Jeff Deist but I disagree with some of what Micheal mentions though, it could be my skepticism of the theological nature of how he couches it.

Our guest Michael Watson joins Jeff Deist after delivering a provocative paper last week at our research conference comparing Mises and Thomas Aquinas. They discuss Misesian praxeology, Catholicism, charity, altruism, and personal relationships in an attempt to decide what acts lie within and without the scope of economics. Are humans really super-rational Homo Economicus beings, per John Stuart Mills? No, according to Mises, who posits that we operate under conditions of bounded rationality using means-ends approaches. How do we reconcile our ethical worldviews with value-free economics? And how can we apply economics and praxeology to things like religious faith, love, and even involuntary conditions like slavery and war?

How does this fit into what you thought about markets?
