Amartya Sen: The Search For Justice

Nobel Laureate; Professor of Economics and Philosophy, Harvard University; Author, Reducing Injustice on Earth

Nobel Laureate Sen has been called the "Mother Teresa of economics" for his work on famine, human development theory and welfare economics. He argues that social justice is more than a matter of intellectual discourse, and that the idea of justice influences how – and how well – people live. Sen offers a powerful critique of the mainstream theories of justice that, despite their many specific achievements, he argues, have taken us in the wrong direction.
