ECONOMIC JUSTICE IN AN UNFAIR WORLD
TOWARD A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD
Recent yeahave seen a growing number of activists, scholars, and even policymakeclaiming that the global economy is unfair and unjust, particularly to developing countries and the poor within them. But what would a fair or just global economy look like Economic Justice in an Unfair World seeks to answer that question by presenting a bold and provocative argument that emphasizes economic relations among states.
The book provides a market-oriented focus, arguing that adjust international economy would be one that is inclusive, participatory, and welfare-enhancing for all states, Rejecting radical redistribution schemes between rich and poor, Ethan Kapstein asserts that a politically feasible approach to international economic justice would emphasize free trade and limited flows of foreign assistance in order to help countries exercise their comparative advantage.
