Abstract: The paper presented at the IES seminar /December 5, 2003/ - a
contribution to the Faculty Research Project. The author applies the
concept of common good -familiar to the theology and political
science- in economics. A coincidence of the sum of individual
goods with the common good at the market of perfect competition
is discussed and a set of preconditions for this harmony is
formulated. A meta-economics raises doubts about egoism as the
sufficient postulate for economics. Conflicts of common good
among different levels /individual, national, european, global/: great
private powerful players dominate post-sovereign states.
Multinationals play "tax optimization games" and force states to "tax
dumping games". Brain drains and negative ecological externalities
complete main directions of this research.
