Economics makes the incommensurable commensurable by money prices. The numeraire of money allows economics to value the different kinds of goods in one scale. On the other hand, there are varieties of goodness that seem not to fit into the numeraire of economics. The ethical is constantly unfit for the scale of prices. It cannot be neglected, however, in considerations of economizing on the good. Therefore, ways of integrating ethics into economics must be found.
