The Solidarity Solution

Principles for a Fair Income Distribution

Kristi A. Olson

  • Raises and offers concrete answers to the normative question of how to fairly distribute income in a just society.
  • Explains how income shares can be adjusted in theory to account for differential burdens, debunking the strongest conservative objections to redistributive taxation.
  • Provides a broadly applicable solution to the "indexing problem" of how to compare bundles of different types of goods, including global distribution of, for example, climate change abatement costs among different countries facing different climate emergencies.
