Arrow Lecture at SSCW 2024

Bertil Tungodden gave the Arrow Lecture at the 17th meeting of the Society for Social Choice and Welfare. The SSCW 2024 took place in Paris from July 3 to 6. The other keynote speakers included Elizabeth Maggie Penn and Thomas Piketty.

The lecture, "Moral choices: Experimental Evidence," outlined a framework where human behavior is driven by a trade-off between self-interested an moral lconsiderations.

Tungodden then discussed how moral choices can be studied experimentally using the spectator approach, and illustrated this by reporting from different large-scale projects exploring the moral values: fairness, efficiency, freedom, and universalism. He argued that we still have a limited understanding of people’s moral motivation, and that it is of great importance for understanding a wide range of economic problems.
