"The essays John Roemer brings together in this collection are of the very highest caliber. This is work of great originality, intelligence, and scholarly competence that effortlessly straddles the boundaries between economics and philosophy." Daniel Hausman, University of Wisconsin
"What is nice about Egalitarian Perspectives is that it allows us, in the case of the five pieces dealing with exploitation, to follow the evolution of Roemer's thought as it encounters difficulties...I remain...very challenged by Roemer's argument...he convinces me that exploitation is a much more complicated and general phenomenon than has traditionally been recognized." Contemporary Sociology
Fifteen essays, written over the past dozen years, explore contemporary philosophical debates on egalitarianism, using the tools of modern economic theory, general equilibrium theory, game theory, and the theory of mechanism design.
