Sen, La Démocratie Et Le Marché Portée Et Limites D'Une Critique
SEN’s system of political economy is assumed to offer a renewed outlook on justice and development. This system is supposed to overcome the mainstream economics. But the critical dimension of SEN’s work must be assessed. His representation of competitive markets is in fact very close to the dominant liberal paradigm. This arises many questions concerning both SEN’s arguments in favor of democracy and the way he deals with justice dilemmas relating to free markets in developing countries. Capabilities’ approach should be mobilized eventually against SEN for a radical interpretation of social and economic inequalities and the way to attack them.
