Examples of Empirical Conditions

3. Judgments and Decisions

Resources, e.g. climate, nature, food, water, time, money etc.

Biological, psychological etc. constitution of human beings ( „human capital“)

Behavior of others!

Institutions, i.e. legal, social, cultural, moral norms ( „institutional capital“)

Conditions of competition

Atmosphere of trust / hope, right of speech, free press etc. ( „social capital“)

The realization of moral ideals always has to take place under concrete empirical conditions. As far as these conditions are essential for a successful social cooperation for mutual advantage they constitute (social) capital that needs investments. 15


The Golden Rule as Heuristics

Invest in the conditions of social cooperation for mutual advantage! „conditions of social cooperation“ = Assets that need management! 

Human capital (capabilities, ‚virtues‘ etc.)

Social capital (social relations, networks etc.)

Rules which coordinate behavior via information and incentives. A necessary prerequisite is their credible enforcement.

Actions which lead to socially wanted or unwanted consequences
