Politics, Well-being and the Market by A.J.M. Milne
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this work, Alan Milne builds on the argument of his earlier book "Ethical Frontiers of the State" that limits on governmental action are to be understood in terms of humanistic social ethics. Here Milne considers the role of the market in politics, and in particular the relation of the market to the obligations of government to advance human wellbeing. Issues covered include contingency in politics, the command economy, capitalism, the welfare state, inequality, and representative democracy.
