Should Differences in Income and Wealth Matter? (Social Philosophy & Policy S.)
Ellen Frankel Paul, Fred D. Miller, Jeffrey PaulISBN: 0521005353;
The essays in this volume assess the empirical and theoretical questions raised by inequalities of income and wealth. Some consider empirical claims about the amount of equality in modern market economies, assessing the allegation that income and wealthhave become more unequally distributed in the past quarter-century. Others consider the extent to which various government initiatives can ameliorate the problems inequality putatively poses. They consider which standards of equality meet the requirements of distributive justice. They also ask if inequality is intrinsically immoral, regardless of its consequences.
