Metaeconomics (Lynne, 2020) brings ethics back into view in economics. It builds on the science of Behavioral Economics. And, with empathy the starting point for ethics, it is especially suited for building an Ego&Empathy Economy as part of an Empathic Civilization (Rifkin, 2009), and a Good Capitalism. Adam Smith (1759/1790) saw Sentiments (Empathy) as the key, which Metaeconomics clarifies is the key to "saving capitalism by making it good (Commons)."
