Exploitation and Economic Justice in the Liberal Capitalist State offers the first new, liberal theory of economic justice to appear in more than 30 years. Built on a non-Marxist theory of exploitation that itself is based on a re-conceived notion of the ancient doctrine of the just price and the author's own more recent concept of intolerable unfairness, the theory of economic justice the book presents is designed to offer an alternative to the mostpopular liberal egalitarian theories of the day, such as those offered by John Rawls and Ronald Dworkin, but one which is designed to be acceptable to both right and left libertarians too.
