About this book


This book uses the building blocks of modern capital market theory, including behavioural finance, as the point of departure for an analysis of hidden ethical content in the contemporary research into capital markets. 
It illustrates the significant degree of alienation between the financial and the real side of economies, stemming from the long-standing struggle between ethics and economics. Furthermore, it provides a roadmap of modern value thinking, highlighting the crucial role of stakeholders and non-governmental organizations.
