Care and the Extension of Markets
This chapter examines the implications of the ethics of care for political and social issues. It addresses the question of whether corporate and market ways of conducting a range of activities should be expanded through privatization and commercialization, or limited. Childcare, healthcare, education, and cultural activities are considered. The chapter shows how dominant moral theories lack the resources to deal with this question, and how the ethics of care provides strong arguments for limiting markets. Market values are not the appropriate ones to be accorded priority in various fields.
