An author is honored when others take his work seriously. I am especially so honored by the care which Kenneth Melchin has taken in engaging my book, The Moral Ecology of Markets. In these brief responses I will make some comments on Ken’s paper and then some broader comments on the project of this conference: the development of Bernard Lonergan’s economics.
