Markets and deciding what the good life is

Painting of two men from Ancient Greece stand next to each other. Plato, on the left, has a long white beard, wears a red gown and points one finger towards the sky. Aristotle, on the right, has brown hair and a beard, wears a white gown and holds his hand out as if in debate. Both men hold books.
Plato and Aristotle in Raphael’s The School of Athens. Both philosophers developed well known theories of what the good life is.
