Currently writing Global Justice as Global Freedom, with Bas van der Vossen (under contract with Oxford University Press): The dominant theories of global justice tend to recommend the exact opposite of what economists think actually works. Van der Vossen and I ask, what would a theory of global justice look like it it were informed by standard development economics? Our conclusion is that it would defend significant economic liberalization, including open trade, open borders, and secure property rights.
