Abstract

The aim of the article is to analyze two perspectives of contemporary Marxism and to understand which values are defended when distributive polices are involved. In rational choice Marxism, freedom needs equality, and depends on justice assumptions; instead, in classical Marxism, liberty needs inequality for the development of productive forces. It concludes that, in capitalism, the notions of liberty and equality affect the institutional mechanisms when distributive policies are considered.
