Capitalism and Justice: Envisioning Social and Economic Justice
John IsbisterISBN: 1565491238;
The capitalist economic system now dominates the world. How fully can it take justice into account? John Isbister takes a practical approach to the most important questions of economic and social justice such as: how big a spread of incomes from rich to poor is consistent with social justice? Should inheritances be abolished? What sort of commitment should a rich country like the USA make to foreign aid? Isbister challenges us to think creatively about the meaning of justice and how it works towards social and economic fairness within the boundaries of capitalism. Students of political economy, ethics, public policy and current affairs as well as motivated citizens who believe there is a need to create a fairer world, will find this book a radical and compelling call to action.
