Unequal Property and Individualism, Kant to Rawls -- Egalitarian Property and Justice as Dueness. Whose Property Is It, Anyway? The Social Nature of Economic Actors and Forms of Equal Dueness.

The Dimension of Community in Capital-Based Market Systems: Between Consumers and Procedures. Endogenous Preferences and Economic Community.
Review: "By exploring the integral relationship between democracy and economic justice, Democratic Distributive Justice seeks to explain how democratic countries with market systems should deal with the problem of high levels of income inequality. The book acts as a guide for dealing with this issue by providing an interdisciplinary approach that combines political, economic, and legal theory. The book also analyzes the nature of economic society and puts forth a new understanding of the agents and considerations bearing upon the ethics of relative pay, such as the nature of individual contributions and the extent of community in capital-based market systems.Summary: Economic justice is then integrated with democratic theory, yielding what Ross Zucker calls "democratic distributive justice." While prevailing theory defines democracy in terms of the electoral mechanism, the author holds that the principles of distribution form part of the very definition of democracy, which makes just distribution a requirement of democratic government."--BOOK JACKET.
