Léon Walras and Social Justice
Mainly known as a pioneer of the general equilibrium theory, French economist Leon Walras was also a thinker on human nature, mores, scientific inquiry and knowledge and a great defender of human freedoms and social justice. His normative economic ideas on the distribution of social wealth were developed in his works L’Économie politique et de la justice (1860) and Études d’économie sociale (1896). He dealt with property, land, and taxes, wealth and poverty, freedom and equality, justice and equity and built a social system around the individual, the state and the society by referring to general social conditions and particular personal positions.
