Presents the pluridisciplinary debate on macroeconomic income distribution
Explains and discusses Kolm's theory of macrojustice
Includes comments by Kolm himself
Gives insight into concepts from political philosophy, public economics, normative economics and econometrics
The "Theory of Macrojustice”, introduced by S.-C. Kolm, is a stimulating contribution to the debate on the macroeconomic income distribution. The solution called “Equal Labour Income Equalisation” (ELIE) is the result of a three stages construction: collective agreement on the scheme of labour income redistribution, collective agreement on the degree of equalisation to be chosen in that framework, individual freedom to exploit his--her personal productive capicities (the source of labour income and the sole basis for taxation). This book is organised as a discussion around four complementary themes: philosophical aspects of macrojustice, economic analysis of macrojustice, combination of ELIE with other targeted tranfers, econometric evaluations of ELIE.
