Justice, Political Liberalism, and Utilitarianism by Marc Fleurbaey
Book DescriptionThe utilitarian economist and Nobel Laureate John Harsanyi and the liberal egalitarian philosopher John Rawls were two of the most eminent scholars writing on problems of social justice in the last century. This volume pays tribute to Harsanyi and Rawls by investigating themes that figure prominently in their work. In some cases, the contributors explore issues considered by Harsanyi and Rawls in more depth and from novel perspectives. In others, the contributors use the work of Harsanyi and Rawls as points of departure for pursuing the construction of theories for the evaluation of social justice. The introductory essay by the editors provides background information on the relevant economics, game theory, philosophy, and social choice theory, as well as readers' guides to the individual contributions, to make this volume widely accessible to scholars in a wide range of disciplines.

Beyond GDP, Hardback (August 2013)
Is GDP a good proxy for social welfare? Building on economic theory, this book confirms that it is not, but also that most alternatives to it share its basic flaw, i.e., a focus on specific aspects of people's lives without sufficiently taking account of people's values and goals. A better approach is possible.
Fairness, Responsibility, and Welfare, Paperback (May 2012)» View all books by Marc Fleurbaey
Many philosophers now define social justice in terms of equal opportunities and economists have incorporated such notions in a new kind of welfare economics in which personal responsibility plays a key role. This book takes a critical perspective and combines philosophical scrutiny with economic analysis to elaborate on these recent developments.
