Description

What capitalism produces is wonderful. It has resulted in enormous technological progress and an almost immeasurable increase in humanity’s productive capacity. However, it has also created enormous inequality, and in order to come to an assessment of the value of capitalism, one must wonder whether this inequality is just. Hence this lecture will examine four arguments about inequality, and ask how these arguments work, whether they are good arguments and whether they could justify the inequality capitalism produces.
