Globalization and Economic Ethics:
Distributive Justice in the Knowledge Economy

by Albino Barrera, OP (Providence College)

What is the appropriate criterion to use for distributive justice?  Is it efficiency, need, contribution, entitlement, equality, effort, or ability?  Globalization and Economic Ethics maintains that far from being rival principles of distributive justice, efficiency and need satisfaction are, in fact, complementary norms in our emerging knowledge economy.  After all, human capital plays the central role in effecting and sustaining long-term efficiency in the Digital Age.  This book explores the vital link between human capital formation and allocative efficiency using the properties of the market and the knowledge economy as analytical tools.
