Overview

Signaling Goodness: Social Rules and Public Choice / Edition 1

Political, intellectual, and academic discourse in the United States has been awash in political correctness, which has itself been berated and defended — yet little understood. As a corrective, Nelson and Greene look at a more general process: adopting political positions to enhance one's reputation for trustworthiness both to others and to oneself.

Phillip Nelson and Kenneth Greene are Professors of Economics in the Department of Economics at the State University of New York, Binghamton.
