Ética para a época do comércio

Her major contributions have been to the economic history of Britain (19th-century trade, modern history, and medieval agriculture), the quantification of historical inquiry (cliometrics), the rhetoric of economics, the rhetoric of the human sciences, economic methodology, virtue ethics, feminist economics, heterodox economics, the role of mathematics in economic analysis, and the use (and misuse) of significance testing in economics, and, in her trilogy "The Bo...urgeois Era,"[9] the origins of the Industrial Revolution.
"Her book The Bourgeois Virtues: Ethics for an Age of Commerce[10] was the first of a planned series of books about the world since the Industrial Revolution -- the Bourgeois Era -- and was published in 2006. McCloskey argued that the bourgeoisie, contrary to its self-advertised faith in prudence only, believes in all Seven virtues.
"The second, Bourgeois Dignity: Why Economics Can't Explain the Modern World was published in 2010, and argued that the unprecedented increase in human welfare of the 19th and 20th centuries, from three dollars per capita per day to over 100 dollars per day, issued not from capitalist accumulation but from innovation.
"The third, Bourgeois Equality: How Ideas, Not Capital or Institutions, Enriched the World appeared in 2016.[9] McCloskey expanded her argument, coining the term "Great Enrichment" to describe the unprecedented gains in human welfare of the 19th and 20th centuries. She reiterated her argument that the enrichment came from innovation and not from accumulation as argued by many from Karl Marx to Thomas Piketty."
