Republic of Equals

Predistribution and Property-Owning Democracy

Alan Thomas

Oxford Political Philosophy

  • The first book length study of property-owning democracy
  • Argues that a society in which capital is universally accessible to all citizens uniquely meets the demands of justice
  • Defends a renovated form of capitalism in which the free market is no longer a threat to social democratic values, but is potentially convergent with them
