* Challenges readers to think creatively about the meaning of justice and how it can work towards social and economic fairness within the boundaries of capitalism.
* A provocative and thoughtful call to action
* Ideal for students of political science, economics, ethics, international relations and public policy

The capitalist economic system now dominates the world, but how fully does it take justice into account? John Isbister takes a practical approach to some of the most important questions about economic and social justice: How does a vast disparity of incomes from rich to poor correlate to social justice? Should inheritances be abolished? What commitment should a rich country like the United States make to foreign aid?
