Equity by H. Peyton Young
Book DescriptionGovernments and institutions, perhaps even more than markets, determine who gets what in our society. They make the crucial choices about who pays the taxes, who gets into college, who gets medical care, who gets drafted, where the hazardous waste dump is sited, and how much we pay for public services. Debate about these issues inevitably centers on the question of whether the solution is "fair." In this book, H. Peyton Young offers a systematic explanation of what we mean by fairness in distributing public resources and burdens, and applies the theory to actual cases.

Individual Strategy and Social Structure, Paperback (January 2001)» View all books by H. Peyton Young
Neoclassical economics assumes that people are highly rational and can reason their way through even the most complex economic problems. This book shows how the cumulative experiences of many individuals coalesce over time into customs, norms, and institutions that govern economic and social life.
