Free Markets and Social Justice

Free Markets and Social Justice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The newest work from one of the most preeminent voices writing in the legal/political arena today, this important book presents a new conception of the relationship between free markets and social justice. The work begins with foundations--the appropriate role of existing "preferences," the importance of social norms, the question whether human goods are commensurable, and issues of distributional equity. Continuing with rights, the work shows that markets have only a partial but instrumental role in the protection of rights. The book concludes with a discussion on regulation, developing approaches that would promote both economic and democratic goals, especially in the context of risks to life and health.

Free Markets and Social Justice develops seven basic themes during its discussion: the myth of laissez-faire; preference formation and social norms; the contextual character of choice; the importance of fair distribution; the diversity of human goods; how law can shape preferences; and the puzzles of human rationality. As the latest word from an internationally-renowned writer, this work will raise a number of important questions about economic analysis of law in its conventional form.

Synopsis:

Operating on the premise that Shakespeare's writings are a unified exploration of the human experience, Philip Edwards's new work stresses the continuity of all the works--plays and poems, early and late writings, comedies and tragedies. The achievement of the plays is examined in chapters

which maintain the traditional categories of comedy, history, and tragedy, but Edwards makes an important contribution to the field with his analysis of "tragicomedy"--a genre which unites the middle "problem" comedies with the final enigmatic "romances."
