“Democracy, Public Finance, and Property Rights in Economic Stability: How More Horizontal Capitalism Upscales Freedom for All,” Polity 44:4, September 2012.
“Economic stability has become a visible problem of social justice. Despite this, a paradigm to justify distribution of stability both inside and outside production is lacking. This paper offers one kind of response by examining how a notion of property rights in stability changes how we conceive of the economic aspects of democratic rights and their rooting in common ownership and control of resources. To elaborate, the paper considers implications for the relation between egalitarian principles and policies and examines links between progressive public finance and the distribution of economic stability in more horizontal and hierarchical capitalist states.”
