PPEL 440 (formerly 340): Justice and Welfare

This course considers what constitutes a better economic distribution, or a fair way to sustain social and economic cooperation. The course centers around two broad families of approaches: those that focus on fairness or justice, and those that evaluate on the basis of welfare improvements. Topics to be considered include the morality of markets, egalitarianism, the Pareto criterion, economic desert, and mutual gain.
