Welcome to the Theories of Society and Economics subforum. In contrast to the subforum on Economic and Social History, this area is provided for discussing models of society and the economy that apply in the modern world, or in general throughout history, rather than discussing actual historical events and developments. Marxist or classical theory should therefore be debated here: the home forum for discussing the historical development of Marxist thought or the development of capitalist economices should be Economic and Social History.

would John Rawls' difference principle model be relevant to this subforum? I understand its more philosophical then specifically economic, however I believe it has specific economic implications. If it is not relevant to this forum, perhaps you could advise me of another sub-forum which may be open to discuss Rawls' difference principle?
 
thanks :)

Offhand I would have said it belonged here as part of the 'Theories of Society' rather than specifically economics (that's a reason for the vagueness of the ttle).
 
However I can also see it has connections with the establishment of economic goals if not economic techniques and policies. So yes it belongs here, and I'm interested in what you have to say about it.

Ok cool. so I'll create a thread on Rawls' difference principle then? It'll be interesting to see your views on the topic Approve
