Action/Economy/Behaviour/Sen: Thesis: Economic action is ultimately based on qualitative value decisions that exceed quantitative logic not only partially, but in principle. However, since cost-benefit analysis subjects all options to the dictates of quantity ("more is better than less"), it must in turn be constrained by qualitative political value judgements; the independent economic mind must always be brought to political reason again.
