Title: Economics and Ethics Part I. The General Conception
Abstract: In this paper we discuss the in uence of ethics on the decisions of persons within the context of mutual in influences of one person on another. We show that this leads to a Markov cha in which converges to annual situation independent of the initial conditions. Different types of decisions are considered: those in personal life, those on the general political and economic constitution and on the current economic policy, taken by the ruling group, selection of the ruling group and related situations. At the end the reverse influence is considered: that of the economic development on ethics.
