Abstract:
Human beings make narrative sense of life, including economic life, to understand: who works and why, what and when to produce, and how much and where to consume. The novel has become a classic, near-universal form of critical, narrative expression. Through reading and analyzing novels, we can explore how individuals and societies represent the relationship between ethical and economic values, meaning and money, and the good life and prosperity. The novel is a valuable analytical instrument at the same time that it may have intrinsic value as a work of art. However, it is also an economic product, influencing and influenced by commercial markets. The demands of work, competing forms of entertainment and enlightenment, and technological change challenge narrative forms to adapt to evolving lifestyles, preferences, and communication methods. What will be the major narratives in the future of the global economy? And what forms might those narratives take?
Bibliography:
After earning a Ph.D. in philosophical aesthetics and ethics, Christopher Michaelson defied philosophical and practical logic to launch a business advisory career in New York. A few years later, he began his academic career while leaving a foot in practice. For most of the past 12 years, he has combined full-time academic positions with part-time business practice and community service. Currently, he is an associate professor of Ethics & Business Law at the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis-St. Paul, on the Business & Society faculty at New York University, and a Global Advisory Director with PwC. Christopher’s business clients have included major multinational corporations, along with government and non-governmental organizations and multilateral financial institutions. He has addressed business and academic audiences on several continents and currently co-edits PwC's strategy and risk journal, Resilience: Winning with Risk, and serves as the Secretary-General of the International Society for Business, Ethics and Economics. Christopher’s primary research specialties include meaningful work, global ethics and emerging risks. His writing–appearing in various academic, trade and blog publications–seeks to shed light on these issues using such media as art, architecture, literature and film. He brings his experience and research to teaching ethics, leadership, governance and sustainability.
