Justice distributive en economie d'echange: Une norme d'equite de second rang


  • Leroux, A.


In the frame of an exchange economy, we propose a criterion to compare a priori (i.e. before the market process begins) two individual endowments. This criterion is incompatible with the main norms of the distributive justice but permits to define of a new norm of equity. Unfortunately, this norm is hardly implementable. But, the proposed criterion allows us to find a norm of second best, which is an excellent compromise between the exigency of equity and the necessity of implementation.
