With many of the biotech innovations, complex social issues have evolved in tandem. These issues reflect the complicated nature of the relationship between individuals and society. Decisions which seem to be largely one of personal ethics can be strongly influenced by the distribution of limited resources, a societal issue. Bioethics and economics are different ways of thinking about how to make choices. They are mostly about setting priorities, which may affect a few individuals or an entire social group or society.
