The text is appropriate for a wide range of undergraduate college courses that cover issues such as political philosophy, ethics, contemporary issues, or economic justice offered by Philosophy, Economics, Political Science, or Sociology departments.This is an introduction to the philosophy of economic justice. Three kinds of economic systems are described: libertarian capitalism, state socialism, and the welfare state with the purpose of determining which best satisfies the requirements of economic justice. Each system is then evaluated from the perspective of three central, widely recognized values: promoting human well-being, giving people what they deserve, and promoting human liberty. Though the book does defend a particular position, it is also written to encourage students to think about the issues intelligently and form their own educated views on the subject.
